Following my love of words, books, and learning, my career evolved from general design to textbooks, to trade books, then to ebooks. I live and work in South Florida and provide designs to clients all over the world. I give them personal service with high standards of design and typography. I work hard to bring out the unique personality of each book, making sure it is recognizable as its genre but is unique enough to attract attention. My designs fit in and stand out.
In addition to book design, I have put my passion for literature and history into publishing Keynote Classics™. These are newly published original texts with added footnotes and an Introductory Key that helps students and casual readers to enjoy sometimes challenging books and to get a little more out of the book than what is on the surface of the story. Historical research puts the novel into perspective and introduces the author. The paperback versions have wide margins for note-taking to help students get more from their reading experience and remember, discuss, or write more confidently about classic literature.

As a book designer and forest lover, I am concerned about the impact of book printing on the environment. The industry uses a tremendous amount of water and wood pulp in the manufacture of books. But forests are necessary to sequester carbon, regulate global temperatures, anchor soil, and act as flood barriers. I am committed to giving a portion of profits to organizations like Eden Reforestation Projects, who work to plant, protect, and restore this crucial resource.
