Originally from New Jersey, I moved to Massachusetts to attend Smith College. After an internship at the Daily Jolt (RIP), I decided Boston was where I wanted to be, and have been here ever since. I took a job at Boston University, which grew over the years to include graphic design, e-mail marketing, marketing strategy, and social media. While working at BU, I completed my Master of Science in Advertising.
I’ve volunteered with AIGA Boston for the last few years as a reviewer at their annual student portfolio review and for the chapter’s 25th anniversary event. I’m also a member of the Graphic Artist Guild.
In 2006, I helped found NO!SPEC, a site devoted to educating designers and clients alike to the dangers of speculative work. In 2007, I became a Visiting Author for Business of Design Online. My column, “Erin Reviews,” focused on reviews of design and design business books. Additionally, I’m a member of Creative Latitude, a worldwide, web-based community that unites various creative disciplines for collective promotion, education, and ethical business practice.
