  • Sometimes-designer.

    Among her former artistic pursuits, Rachel designed posters and promotions for The Flaming Lips, Grizzly Bear, Beach House, Deerhunter, and others. She also collaborates on web-based projects.

A semester abroad in St. Petersburg developed Rachel’s interest in Russian art and culture, eventually leading her to write her undergraduate thesis on early Soviet mass media. In college Rachel gained insight into the “art world” with internships at The Frick Collection and Christie’s. A former artist, she also consulted on marketing campaigns and taught high school students before deciding to devote herself to a career in art.
