I was born in Portland, Oregon and grew up in a small cabin in the middle of the woods near Port Townsend, Washington. I attended a one-room schoolhouse where I learned to bake soufflés and read Shakespeare. I have a BFA in Communication Design from Pacific Northwest College of Art. I work for Tin House, where I design books and other things that are read.
Please see my website for a more complete portfolio. NOTE: At this time, I'm only taking requests for interior design and layout. Feel free to message me for more samples.
