* Available for interior design and layout of print editions only *
I have two decades of publishing and layout experience, including more than a decade of book design. I was a designer at Tin House for over ten years. I've also worked with Horsethief Books, Turtle Point Press, Puerto del Sol (New Mexico State University), and others. Authors I've designed for include Ursula K. Le Guin, Judy Grahn, Morgan Parker, Melissa Broder, Tommy Pico, Margot Livesey, Barbara Gowdy, Kristen Arnett, Claire Fuller, Charles D'Ambrosio, Lacy M. Johnson, Martha Baillie, Hanif Adburraqib, Robin Pecknold, and more. I've worked with a number of self-published authors. I'm experienced in magazine design and layout as well. I also design marketing materials, such as banners and web ads, and can help authors with promotional campaigns.
NOTE: I'm not available for cover design or ebook production at this time. I'm primarily taking requests for interior design and layout. Feel free to message me with questions.
POLICY DISCLAIMER: I don’t work on projects that are homophobic, sexist, transphobic, racist, antisemitic, xenophobic, ableist, right-wing aligned, or that portray any sort of bigotry in a positive or neutral light.
