Hi, I'm Armistead.

Nice to meet you! I'm a visual storyteller, nonprofit champion, moonlighting superhero, proud father, and a great listener. 

Currently, I’m a strategic associate at FiveStone, a creative agency in New York City that collaborates with innovative nonprofits, artists, and organizations around the world. I primarily work alongside Matchbook Learning to turn around America’s lowest performing schools, providing a wide range of services, including narrative and social strategy, classroom user experience and interaction, and professional development and pedagogy design.

Previously, I was director of design and an educator at the American Museum of Natural History for over a decade; marketing director at Metropolis Ensemble, an enthusiastic young orchestra; principle at Refresh, a Brooklyn-based design studio; and founding board member of Global Playground, an educational nonprofit building schools around the world. My wife Elisa, the children’s director at Trinity Grace Church, and we live (and breathe) on the sleepy end of the Park Slope neighborhood of Brooklyn with our energetic three-year-old son, Benjamin... and one more on the way.
