Verified identity


I am a senior-level graphic designer with over 10 years of experience in the publishing industry. I have worked both in-house and on a freelance basis with commercial publishers and self-published authors, offering design and layout for covers, jackets, ebooks and interiors across all non-fiction genres. I am well acquainted with the the overall book production process, and can either guide you through your project or jump seamlessly into your established workflow.

And when I say all non-fiction genres, I mean it! I can help you with your cookbook, textbook, true crime masterpiece, children's nature guide, coffee table art book, or your mom's memoir. From Italian disco to dachshund photography, I have probably designed a book about it and have some expertise to offer.
