Aaron Drake '09

2009 and 2010 CIA graduate Aaron Drake (he holds two CIA degrees) was so dedicated to a wide-ranging arts education that he completed two degrees at CIA. He earned his first BFA in Industrial Design in 2010, and graduated again a year later, this time with a BFA in Jewelry + Metals. While still in school (in 2009), Drake began interning with Heather Moore Jewelry. As the luxury jewelry design company tripled in size, Aaron steadily worked his way up through ranks. Before achieving his current position as head designer and director of new product development, Drake was 3-D model designer, diamond setter and diamond setting training manager.

Drake credits the quality and comprehensiveness of the CIA curriculum with helping him develop the craft and design skills necessary to succeed as a professional artist. Just this year, his designs have garnered first place honors in the JCK Jewelers Choice Awards, the Centurion Gold Design Awards and the Couture Bridal Design Awards.
