Overview

Reviews (1)

I am a book cover designer and illustrator working in professional publishing, with more than ten years’ experience. I have a particular interest in thrillers, crime, and mystery novels. I have been fortunate to work with many New York Times bestselling authors, celebrities, and some of the top publishers in the world. My designs have been featured on the cover of Publishers Weekly, in The Huffington Post and the San Francisco Chronicle, and on the TODAY show, to name a few. My work has also been featured at numerous book conferences including Book Expo America (BEA) in 2012, 2013, and 2014.

When I’m not designing and reading, I devote my time as a recovering guitarist and wandering through the Appalachian Mountains.
