graphic design | book design | photography

I am a designer based in Knoxville, TN with over ten years of experience. Along with identity projects, ads, packaging, and design for small and large campaigns, I have designed covers and interiors of 50+ books, ranging from trade and academic titles to photo-based fine art books and self-released magazines and brochures. I have had the benefit of working in/for small design firms, universities, large corporations, and independent publishing houses which has provided me the opportunity of taking jobs (titles) from initial idea (or edited manuscript) to press-ready files. I currently work as a designer for Scripps Networks Interactive's Creative Services department.
