After working for a large graphic design firm for almost 20 years, I set out on my own in 2007. I discovered then that I loved the complexity of book design. I'm a reader at heart so designing books seemed like a natural progression for me.
I work on large scale and small scale projects. In most cases, I'm provided a finished/edited manuscript along with images. I typically work closely with authors or publishers to produce an end result that pleases all of us. Often, the best ideas come from the authors or photographers themselves, this is definitely a collaborative process. One of the reasons I love book design is that it offers me the opportunity to be a part of a team.
I thoroughly enjoy my non book related graphic design projects as well. For a look at my other work, visit
