i value curiosity, play, and hard work to bring out the best in every project. my roots in traditional children’s book publishing are almost 15 years deep. i was an editor and a designer at Running Press Book Publishers, specializing in children’s books across all ages. i earned a bfa in printmaking/book arts from uarts in philly and a post-bac in graphic design from mica in baltimore. when i'm not creating in the studio, i can be found graphic designing at the delaware museum of natural history, wandering wooded trails, or exploring city wonders. most days, my artful life takes place in delaware with my wife and black Labrador.
