About the Designer

I come from a large Italian family of entrepreneurs so it was only a matter of time before I took the reins and started my own business.

After grad­u­at­ing from Mont­clair State Uni­ver­si­ty with a major in Hos­pi­tal­i­ty, like any oth­er col­lege grad­u­ate, I was unsure of a career path. I found myself in dif­fer­ent roles at renowned company’s like the Hyatt & West­in Brand, Walt Dis­ney World as well as, AAA Mid-Atlantic.

It wasn’t until my role as Event & Mar­ket­ing Man­ag­er at a wealth man­age­ment firm that I dis­cov­ered my pas­sion for graph­ic design. There I was held respon­si­ble for all cre­ative direc­tion regard­ing their mar­ket­ing col­lat­er­al and plan­ning logis­tics of all client appre­ci­a­tion events such as wine tast­ings, finan­cial sem­i­nars and golf out­ings.  I enjoyed what I was doing thor­ough­ly and soon found myself back in the class­room to enhance my Graph­ic & Web Design skills.  Since then I enter­tained free­lance projects for small busi­ness brand­ing and con­tin­ue to be suc­cess­ful with cre­at­ing great results for many small busi­ness­es through graph­ic design con­cepts.

Soon after, I found myself in that stage of your life when every­one you know is get­ting mar­ried!  One of them being my cousin, who approached me to design her wed­ding invi­ta­tions.  It was my first attempt at an embell­ished wed­ding invi­ta­tion so I was a bit hes­i­tant, but togeth­er we made it hap­pen.  I start­ed to receive great feed­back from the guests who received the invi­ta­tion and even the venue had pos­i­tive words to say.  Short­ly after the wed­ding the venue actu­al­ly con­tact­ed me to show them more, and before I knew it I was their wed­ding invi­ta­tion and sta­tionery pre­ferred ven­dor and still am today.  Since then I have estab­lished sim­i­lar rela­tion­ships with oth­er venues in the cen­tral New Jer­sey and Greater Philadel­phia.  The com­bi­na­tion of those rela­tion­ships and warm refer­rals has allowed me to do what I love full-time.

It is no sur­prise that Cup­cake Graph­ics now spe­cial­izes in bou­tique wed­ding invi­ta­tions and sta­tionery suites.  Every invi­ta­tion I design is metic­u­lous­ly hand assem­bled and pack­aged with the high­est atten­tion to qual­i­ty and detail.  I work close­ly with each client’s bud­get to cre­ate a wed­ding invi­ta­tion suite that is per­son­al­ly tai­lored.

When I am not design­ing, I enjoy spend­ing time with fam­i­ly and friends.  I am a huge fan of com­e­dy shows and the­atre in gen­er­al.   I am also, what some would call, a food­ie.  I enjoy try­ing new restau­rants and unique foods and pair­ing my meals with great wines.  Hav­ing planned wine-tast­ings in the past, I have learned to tru­ly appre­ci­ate the taste and art of wines from all over the world.

Whether you are look­ing to spruce up your mar­ket­ing col­lat­er­al or cre­ate the per­fect wed­ding invi­ta­tion, I tai­lor each project to fit my client’s needs and pro­vide a pleas­ant expe­ri­ence through the process. I take pride in what I do.  Design is my pas­sion and I hope to share it with you.
