Hello, and thanks for visiting my site!
I am a graphic designer and illustrator in Croton-on-Hudson, NY, who specializes in print design and custom projects, such as logos, one-of-a-kind maps, greeting cards, and books. In October 2016, the first book I had both designed and illustrated throughout—Thanksgiving: The Holiday at the Heart of the American Experience—was published by Encounter Books. Before I took the plunge of becoming a full-time freelancer at the close of 2015, I was an editor at two national magazines. To keep my editorial skills sharp while primarily working with images and type, I train down to NYC twice a month to copyedit the independent-minded financial journal Grant's Interest Rate Observer.
Design and illustration clients include, in alphabetical order, the Alabama Policy Institute, Artspace, Dover Vineyards, Encounter Books, the Jewish Book Council, The New Criterion, Oxford University Press, Prufrock, RationalWave Capital Partners, Skyhorse Publishing, UPNE, Verily magazine, The Washington Free Beacon, The Weekly Standard, and W.W. Norton. I also accept projects from individuals on a first-come basis depending on availability.
I was raised in McLean, VA, and have been drawing for as long as I can remember. I attended Davidson College in Davidson, NC, where I held the Pepper Visual Arts Scholarship and graduated in 2008 with degrees in Classics (Latin, with a dash of Greek) and Studio Art. Since then I have learned how to marry my two, long-held interests in words and images in the work I do now. Design and illustration are endlessly interesting fields to work in—and rewarding, as at the end of many days, there is something to hold in your hands that you have made.
