Art director, designer of books, illustrator, hand-letterer, and an all-around nice person.

I grew up in the woods, near the Long Island Sound, picking raspberries, skimming stones, riding my bike up and down my street. Not that you care or anything. I just wanted to give you a little backstory. For college, I went to FIT in NYC. I took a strange, roundabout route, but made my way into the field of graphic design, and I'm glad I did. I am currently the Art Director at a wonderful independent book publisher called The Experiment. My night/weekend job is proprietor of a letterpress company (smithletterpress.com). I live in Montclair, NJ. I love animals. I play tennis, and I take a lot of naps.

I am available for select freelance jobs for the following:

- book covers
- illustrated, heavily designed book interiors
- hand-lettering
- illustrations
- pet-sitting
