Melissa is a proud Long Island native who loves a good cup of “cawfee”, its a morning-must after that two hour commute. She helps create some of Grandesign’s biggest and baddest programs as a Junior Producer in the GDX NY/NJ office, and contributes her fine arts expertise and creative knack to each of them. 


She came to Grandesign just weeks are graduating from Marist College, during which she spent a semester abroad in Italy, where she lived la dolce vita, refined her palate for wine and food pairings, and spoke just enough Italian. Melissa is a self proclaimed “ad-geek” who has been all things Ad obsessed ever since winning a slogan contest at age 8. Despite having no middle name (her LL Bean backpack never looked quite right,) the "MC" brand is one she's made all her own. When she's not at work or on a train, you can find her exploring anywhere and everywhere for new artistic inspiration, trying to master a headstand at her local yoga studio, and spending plenty of quality time at home with her family.
