ROCHESTER INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY

Nathan is a fourth year Graphic Design student at RIT. Originally hailing from the Washington DC area, he was drawn to Rochester because of its creative, productive, down-to-earth culture and unique music scene (and garbage plates). He has always had an interest in making cool things for himself and for other people, and coming to RIT has helped him significantly hone his craft. Nathan works at a marketing communications firm in Pittsford NY on top of his busy schedule as a Design Director for Positive Negative Magazine, lab assistant, and senior design student. A whole pot of hand-poured coffee every morning (even on off days) certainly helps.
