graphic designer, illustrator, educator
I'm here to celebrate and spread visual communication. I revel in story-telling, thrill to displays of skill, and champion hybrids, mongrels, and cross-pollinations.
I was born and raised in the mighty city of Chicago, spent much of my adult years in the fertile land of Brooklyn, and am now making a home in the wilds of the Pioneer Valley. I earned a BFA in theatre from the University of Illinois and a BFA in graphic design at Pratt Institute. I was an adjunct professor at Pratt for 8 years, and have run my own design & illustration studio for the past 15 years.
