Overview

My superpower is interior design. I have thirty years experience designing books. Mostly textbooks, but I can design any type of book. I also have lots of experience creating illustrations and graphics for textbooks. If you need design or illustration that enhances and lifts up your message--that's what I do!

My goal is to work closely with authors to create designs that are engaging, functional, and delightful. When I work together with an author to unite content and design the outcome will always be a stronger, more impactful, and more successful book.

I am a serene presence in any storm, always organized, never late on deadline. I will help guide you through the interior and cover design process and ensure that you receive a professional and beautiful finished product.

Work experience

Art Director

Pearson Education
August, 2001 – May, 2019 (over 17 years)

Pearson was the most recent publisher that I worked for. In my thirty year career I have worked for several textbook publishers. In those years I have learned all aspects of the publishing process and I have a depth of knowledge in all types of design and illustration. I have built on everything I learned and passion that I possess to start my own freelance book design company.
