Overview

Vibrant and active, minimalist and witty, hand drawn or digitally created - whatever a story needs, I aim to deliver. I am an experienced graphic designer who’s worked in Ballet, Opera, Fashion and Film. I am also a voracious reader whose favorite art gallery is the shelves at the local bookstore.

From working at Time Inc, Hearst and Fairchild publications, I’ve acquired the skills to design book covers and interiors. Designing for Lincoln Center, Austin Opera, and Cincinnati Ballet, I learned about designing with imagery and text in a memorable and dynamic way. These experiences have shaped me into a designer who knows how to communicate, collaborate, manage time, and produce cohesive work in an agile and creative way.

Adult, teen, children’s titles, fiction, non-fiction. Romance, mystery, biography, sci fi - I am excited to connect readers to your work! Contact me, and we’ll work together to find the best way to represent your stories.

Lighting for Cinematography: A Practical Guide to the Art and Craft of Lighting for the Moving Image (The CineTech Guides to the Film Crafts)
