I grew up up in small town north of Pittsburgh with an abundance of three things: classical piano, Aerosmith, & Italian food. But, like in any musical household, other forms of art positioned themselves in my life in different ways. My aunt is a gifted artist, painter, and illustrator, and taught me to see things from an aesthetic standpoint at an early age. My dad, while first and foremost a guitar player, was a renowned stained glass artist.
While I dabbled in fine art throughout high school, I had an equally piqued interest in technology, but it wasn’t until college that I combined the two. After attending NYU for classical piano performance, I finished my undergrad in music technology at Duquesne University and went on to obtain a Masters Degree in Multimedia.
After college, I spent the next few years honing my skills as a web & graphic designer for iHeart Radio, The Pittsburgh Symphony, and lastly as a lead designer at Giant Ideas, a top Pittsburgh advertising agency. In 2011, I felt an undeniable tug from the universe to branch out on my own. Incorporating my expertise in music, film and design, I formed a one stop shop with the intention to help small businesses find their voice and unlock their potential. And that is how Minor Keys Media was born.
