I'm a designer/art director with a passionate interest in the art and significance of the book cover. In exploring different modes of visual language, I always strive to shepherd the final product to a state of sophistication, dynamism and succinctness.

Additionally, I deliver all of the qualities to be expected of a professional designer:

• the ability to quickly grasp concepts
• highly-adept at incorporating feedback and modifying designs accordingly
• excellent written and verbal communication skills

A terrific experience, working with Dave. He has great ideas, quick follow-through, and excellent skills. I've already selected him for my next cover collaboration. I can't wait to see what he comes up with for the two I've yet to do.

David is the epitome of professionalism and a master of his craft. We collaborated back and forth over the course of the contract many times as he shared designs, asked me for feedback, then created more designs until I selected the one I wanted. The cover and interior design are beautiful. Thanks, David!
