Along the way, he has reshaped the image of the largest banks in America, helped transition one of the nation’s most recognizable brands into the world of mobile, toured the nation as a DJ, published his memoirs, and became a professor of Virtual Reality and Animation. His award winning tours of duty include stints at Razorfish, Tierney, Bristol Myers Squibb, Philadelphia University, Ultra Records, and Lombardi’s Original Brick Oven Pizza in Philadelphia.

By day, she is a Digital Art Director at Merkle, Inc. and by night (and weekends) a graduate student at Jefferson University studying User Experience/Interaction Design.
