Born and raised in New York, Jared attended Towson University in MD in the Fall of 2012. He spent four years adjusting to all the polite Marylanders, working hard and grinding to receive his BFA in Digital Arts & Design.
Post-graduation, Jared was hired as a graphic designer at Bacchus Importers, Ltd., a wine and spirits distributor in Baltimore, MD. He spent the next 2 ½ years concepting and designing printed promotional items and bringing various branded window, end-cap displays and signages to life. An unintended benefit of his role was a couple of years drinking free wine and spirits from defective bottles not good enough to be showcased at retail establishments. While he’s developed a broad taste pallet, please don’t ask him to break down wine past red versus white!
Jared just had his first taste of backpacking across Europe this year and is already planning his next trip; Amsterdam will be on repeat. And, when he’s not working and traveling, Jared is avidly adding to his extensive collection of comic books and consuming vast amounts of movies.
Excited to be back home in New York, Jared is thrilled to begin this new chapter of his life enrolled in the Masters of Branding Program at SVA.
