I offer comprehensive design and publishing solutions for authors and publishers who are looking for exceptional quality book covers and interiors. As a designer, my values are deeply rooted in the value of the book as art object. I do not subscribe to the idea that a book cover and interior should be handled by different departments or even different designers, and have sought to reverse this trend through content-responsive design on full book packages, including cover, interior, and eBook design. I have a background in printmaking, editing, and writing, as well as over 6 years of design experience in publication design. I consistently work with large publishing clients and independent authors on everything from self-publishing to large-scale offset print runs—there's no job too big or too small for consideration.
Over the past three years, I have designed over 250 books and 30 educational textbooks for clients ranging from successful self-publishing authors like Eliot Peper, Jesse Tevelow, Brad Feld, and William Mougayar, and for publishers like Amazon Publishing, Dzanc Books, John Wiley and Sons, Book in a Box, Zearn, and more. I specialize in to-print book projects, but will consider all book projects from self-publishing authors to large publishers.
I served as the Creative Director of FG Press throughout its existence. I handled design of every title within our collection, designed promotional material for all titles, and oversaw all production tasks from large-scale offset print-runs to digital edition generation and distribution.
I served as the Editor-in-Chief of the University of Colorado Honors Journal during my undergraduate career, and took charge of the design and layout of the journal for the duration of my tenure.
