Overview

In need of cover design or promotional materials for your book? I'm ready to work with you. I have over fifteen years experience in design and advertising. Current clients include Open Letter Publishing, RIT Press, and Gallaudet University Press. I've developed creative solutions for clients large and small, digital and print. If you have a book that you’re about to release, make sure that the quality of the cover matches the effort you put into writing it. Though I primarily design book covers and interior pages these days, I am happy to work with you on whatever design needs you may have.
