Hi, I’m Dani — an independent Creative / Art / Design director kickin’ it in Brooklyn. I work with in-house brand teams and clients on design strategy, brand systems, brand marketing, campaigns, and copy.

I've been a part of great teams like the Oscar Health brand team, Stink Studios NY, the Intercom Brand Studio, and Vox Media. Freelance clients include Webflow, Our Place, Impossible Foods, and more.

I have a BFA in graphic design from RISD, I recently wrote a kids' book, and I highly respect good people and bad puns.

Living With: is a project I founded in 2013 that empowers people working on their mental health to be confident in themselves and the way their brain works. Shirts are a powerful canvas for outwardly showing support, pride, and community. The decision of what shirt to wear on any given day is an active, engaged, and self-aware choice that the wearer makes. When applied to mental health, shirts become a small way to positively affect one’s mindset. As the company grew up, we partnered with Active Minds, to whom $2 of every shirt sold is donated.
