Hello! I’m an award-winning freelance art director and web designer who especially loves to work in the beautiful and increasingly rare world of publication design. My clients have included The New York Times, Newsweek, Auburn Seminary, and Yale University.

I enjoy working with authors and filmmakers to develop visual branding and web design for their creative projects. I’ve also created annual reports, media kits, power point decks, web sites, branded event materials, and merchandise for both corporate and non-profit clients.

Prior to becoming a freelancer, I was a Graphics and Design Editor at the Chicago Tribune, overseeing a staff of 17 designers and art directing two major Pulitzer Prize winning projects.

I look forward to creating something fabulous with you!





I am proud to have been honored by The Art Directors Clubs of New York and Toronto, Society of Publication Designers, Society for News Design, and the Chicago Headline Club's Lisagor Awards.
