    Art is in my blood. It has been for as long as I can remember. One of my first memories is drawing a hippopotamus when I was four. The drawing is long gone, but my love of art was born that day.

    After college I started out as an illustration artist, however I quickly realized that the life of a freelance illustrator was not for me. Graphic design offered me the ability to create art and still pay the bills, so I took the plunge. It’s been twenty years and I haven’t looked back.

    I am an art director and graphic designer in all types of print media. Ad agencies and design studios are where I cut my teeth doing everything from mechanicals and stats to art/creative direction. I’ve been a designer for twenty years now, the last twelve of those in Higher Education. I’m especially passionate about typography and editorial design. I’m a gamer, a daydreamer and a lover of cats, and when I grow up, I want to be a marine biologist.

  • SOUP?

    I ONLY WANTED THE MAGAZINE.

    In 1990, as a junior in art school, I was part of a design group. We were a bunch of close friends that fed off each other’s talents and energy. I was the tree-hugger of our group and my push was finding ways to produce work without producing garbage. We were constantly looking for inspiration: posters, design books, essays, tools, recycled papers, reuse of materials, artwork of all sorts, and as many design magazines we could get our hands on. One of those magazines was Emigre Magazine. Art directors Rudy Vanderlands and Zuzana Licko entranced me with their use of experimental layouts and opinionated articles. Of course I subscribed—under our working name of Green Group. When that first issue of Emigre arrived, I was amused to see that they had mistakenly addressed it to Green Soup instead of Green Group. Well I thought that it was a quirky and charming oversight and I decided to keep it. Green Soup was made that day.

    I knew a good idea when it presented itself and who was I to argue with the wisdom of Emigre Magazine?
