Overview

With over ten years in editorial design across industries (music, entertainment, food, travel, LGBTQ), I've created stunning typography and design solutions for clients that include Billboard, Meredith Corporation, Esquire, Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, Kraft Foods, Panera, RCI, and Publix. My portfolio samples demonstrate my ability to create bold, eye-catching graphics that are sure to grab attention. My work has been recognized by Society of Publication Design, American Illustration and GLAAD.

I am open to projects that last weeks to months, but I prefer assignments with tighter deadlines. I generally start projects with a creative call to understand your particular aesthetic and, in working with editors and writers across all sorts of markets, I've developed a knack for understanding a client's vision. I'm quick, professional and easy going. On the personal side, I'm a cat lover, pop music snob and drag enthusiast.

I'd love to turn your craziest (or super tame) ideas into beautiful visual masterpieces.
