Is a Book Designer in Brooklyn


I am a detail oriented designer with a depth of creative knowledge and tasteful design aesthetic who has worked with many of the industry's top professionals. My strong background in designing children’s books and young adult novels include cover solutions and interior layouts from start to finish. Each role has been an important part of my career, and provided the tools to develop both personally and professionally. I have an appreciation for all kinds of books and all kinds of readers.
