About

I’ve never met a book I won’t read, which must be why I love working with words on a page whenever I can.

Whether in pixels or print, design is about telling stories. It takes imagination and logic, communication and intuition, juxtaposition and metaphor. It’s about grasping the details and the big picture. Seeing the world through new eyes.

I specialize in print, branding, and editorial design. With over 15 years of experience, I still get excited when a new challenge crosses my desk. I like to put people first, which means not thinking in terms of “client” or “audience” but of people going about their day-to-day lives. So many things demand our attention. I want the work I create to be worth someone’s time.

I’m passionate about projects that enrich or inform the world or that simply spark joy. I work with small businesses, universities, health care providers, non-profits, writers— anyone who appreciates a hands-on approach to the craft. I believe in hard work over fleeting moments of inspiration, although a mix of both usually does the trick.

When I’m not at my desk, you’ll find me outside roaming the 60-acre farm where I live. I love used bookstores and pro cycling, getting my hands dirty, and rainy days on the porch.
