Overview

Reviews (2)
During my 8+ years working as a professional designer, I’ve been an art director of a magazine, an in-house designer at a non-profit and now a freelance book designer. I’ve won some awards, lectured during a design week and I’ve recently been published in Create Magazine.

In 2016, I snagged an MFA in graphic design from Vermont College of Fine Arts and I now live a semi-nomadic military spouse lifestyle in Fayetteville, North Carolina.

His surgeon ventured into the tangle of tissue, nerves, and blood vessels in his groin to remove his prostate, seminal vesicles, lymph nodes, and some surrounding tissue. The good news... read more

Sarah has been a pleasure to collaborate with! Though I've been published conventionally, this was my first experience having an ebook formatted, and she patiently guided me through the process.
