A professional book designer and illustrator specializing in Young Adult and Adult Fiction novels.


A focused and passionate Illustrator and Graphic Designer, I design book jackets to drive publishing businesses, inspire the Adult and Young Adult audience, and cultivate profitable business relationships built on respect, loyalty, and trust.

I am passionate about illustration and typography and how they are integrated to promote ideas and narratives. Driven by classical imagery, minimalism, current events, lifestyle photography, and plain ole' curiosity, my goal is to advertise concepts and stories through captivating book covers.
