GROWING UP, Caitlin was that rare kid in Upstate New York who could not wait to flee the scene.  On the few trips she took to cities she felt inspired, and knew in her bones that she was urban-bound.  After graduating from Marist College with an Advertising Design Major + English Writing Minor, she landed her first job at a small boutique advertising agency, and has felt at home in Manhattan ever since. With 15 years in the creative industry, Caitlin has provided artistic & photographic direction, branding identity, creative strategy, corporate marketing & advertising design for luxury brands, in-house creative teams, publications, non-profits, and freelance clients.  She has been fortunate to work with some exciting brands including

New York Magazine, Judith Ripka, David Yurman, and Douglas Elliman Real Estate - opportunities which have shaped her into an innovative problem-solver who delivers thoughtful design solutions while helping brands evolve.

 

When she's not behind a computer, you can often find Caitlin on long city strolls with her husband, plotting the next home improvement project, making pasta from scratch, or editing the thousands (yes...thousands) of photos she took on a recent safari trip.
