E L P M A Book.
Dear Viewer, Welcome to a collection of my most recent, and favorite work completed during my time as a student at Syracuse University (2000 - 2005) and as a graphic designer post college. I am a multitasker, adept at working under strict deadlines and have worn many hats within my ﬁeld. The chance to challenge my abilities as a designer, work with creative professionals, and be beneﬁcial to the client is an environment in which I thrive. I am fascinated by the user experience and how one interacts with media. The following pieces range from product design and sculpture, to ceramics , graphic design, branding and merchandising. When given a speciﬁc problem, a successful solution is one which relates to everyday life, where a critic can say ‘I can see myself using that!’ There is nothing more rewarding than seeing my work in motion, sometimes literally! Thank You for your time, enjoy and be entertained!

There were over 6,000 deliveries and 3,000 gynecologic operations each year and our out-patient department visits exceeded 60,000 in obstetrics and 15,000 in gynecology.

Eastern U.S.A., Canada (Toronto), and Bermuda was an amazing adventure!. Taking the Department of ObGyn of NYMC to Haiti, Panama, Columbia, Bolivia, Rwanda, Cameroon and China was another great adventure.” Dr. Maria Boria went on to found a hospital in India, training doctors, nurses and paramedics in the provision of maternal and child health care to the urban and rural poor internationally before dedicating herself to community health care in Maryland. She is a shining example of the quality of staff I had at NYMC. Doctors who believed in hard work and commitment. How lucky was I to have them on staff! And I am humbled to hear them say how lucky they were, to have had me. We were mutually blessed. These activities emphasize strongly how dedicated our department was to offering programs aimed at outreach, at helping the people we served with their lives. I did not create these programs; they were the visions of members of my staff. No wonder I am so proud of what we did while the “Center” was functioning in Manhattan. Once again, it was not about money or policy. It was about My work with Maria Boria and the Street Theater kids was a life-altering experience patient care, first and foremost.

Another special program was the affiliation of NYMC with Project Hope, in Jamaica. It was born as a project focused on providing first-rate medical care to some of the disadvantaged of that particular area of the world, which the Ship Hope would visit. With time, as Project Hope became more involved with the medical needs in Jamaica, West Indies, another problem arose. The University of West Indies, an excellent medical school located in Kingston, Jamaica, attracted excellent dedicated students from all over the Caribbean. In the early 1970s there were approximately 100-125 graduating students each year. The university system was controlled by the United Kingdom. Graduating students who wanted to continue as residents (they called them registrars) had to physically leave the West Indies to go to England, Canada or other areas of the Commonwealth to learn their specialty training. Very few of these ever returned to the Caribbean. It became a priority of Project Hope to try to help Jamaica develop its own residency program at the University of West Indies; efforts were critical in stemming the exodus of medical talent from the islands.
