graphic design | book design | photography 


I am a designer based in Nashville, TN with 12+ years of experience. Along with identity projects, ads, packaging, and 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. I've had the benefit of working for small design firms, universities, large corporations, and independent publishing houses which has provided me the opportunity of taking jobs (titles) from initial concept (or edited manuscript) to press-ready files. I currently work as a senior art director for Lewis Communications.
