Ideas made visible
I am a publication and graphic designer who has wide experience and deep passion for the visual narrative, particularly with photography.
For editors and publishers, I have a broad range of skills from years as a creative director and manager of visual teams (National Geographic, The Washington Post, U.S.News & World Report). I am adept at balancing ambitious editorial goals with the acute needs of the evolving media landscape.
For photographers, I bring years of experience photo editing and designing with solid understanding of the power of the visual narrative. I’ve helped numerous photographers with book design, project editing, branding, and website visual design.
While I have an emphasis on photography, I’ve also worked with illustration, cartography, and information graphics. I have solid experience spanning print and digital in all forms, from newspapers, magazines, books, e-books, apps and websites.
