Hi, I'm Dani - a designer kickin' it in Brooklyn by way of San Francisco and Baltimore. You can catch me directing design with the Brand team at Oscar Health
, as well as taking on select side projects from my desk at home. I've been a part of great teams, like Stink Studios
NY, the Intercom Brand Studio
, and Vox Media. I graduated from the graphic design dept. at RISD, I recently opened a *shop
*, and I highly respect good people and bad puns.

As a designer at Vox Media (the home of SBNation, The Verge, Vox.com, Eater, Recode, Curbed, Polygon, and Racked), I worked on projects spanning all of the brands, platforms, external and internal audiences, marketing campaigns, and special events.
