Hi!

I am a print-focused communication designer with 10+ years experience. I’ve worked as an in-house book designer, a magazine art director, and am currently working as an independent freelancer. I love all things food related and am passionate about photography and visual story-telling. I’m currently looking for interesting collaborations within publishing and with other independent businesses. Let’s chat!
