Down to Shop

Down to Shop was "QVC for Gen Z" - a live shopping channel, completely reimagined for a young audience. Down to Shop created video content to introduce and sell up and coming product brands while developing in-house characters & IP. We regularly brought in thousands of viewers during livestreams, sold tens of thousands of products from various brands, and cultivated a cult following for our homegrown, on-screen characters. I was responsible for selecting, purchasing, merchandising, and marketing everything Down to Shop sold.

Nearly Impossible

Nearly Impossible was a resource for physical product makers who build strong brands and grow successful businesses. Our event helped product makers develop compelling brand strategies and gave them the skills and connections they needed to succeed. Through this event, I was lucky to work with some of the world’s best product and retail companies including West Elm, Kate Spade, Warby Parker, Everlane, Baggu, The MoMA Design Store, Heath Ceramics, and more. I founded and ran Nearly Impossible with the talented Lauren O'Neill.

Andy Warhol Exhibition

Deeply Superficial was an exhibition on Andy Warhol that I helped curate as part of my thesis in college. The exhibition offered insights into the way Warhol applied the mass-media aesthetic of serial repetition to the representation of “celebrity,” and revealed how he brought film, photography, and painting together in a fascinating and radical experience. The show featured hundreds of original Warhol Polaroid portraits, dozens of Screen Test films, and temporary loans from the Museum of Modern Art and other institutions.
