I like to describe my job as helping clients find and define their voice, whether shouted along a noisy canning line or whispered in the aisles of a bookstore. A balance of intellectual and visceral charge is key to every concept and execution. My art direction, custom lettering, illustration, design, and writing have elevated a wide range of clients across the country. From hand-printed underground show posters to the facades of cultural landmarks, my designs have been an indelible part of Baltimore’s visual landscape for two decades. Outside of Baltimore my work has appeared in many forms including branding, packaging, best-selling book cover designs, and high-end wallcoverings.

As co-founder of Post Typography, I've had the pleasure of creating work for and collaborating with start ups and industry leaders including 2SP Brewing Company, The New York Times, the Maryland Film Festival, John Legend & The Roots, Union Collective, and Maharam. I co-authored Lettering & Type with Bruce Willen for Princeton Architectural Press. My writing on design has appeared in Washington Post and TYPE Magazine and I’ve spoken at institutions including The Cooper Union, Harvard, and AIGA chapters nationwide.

After 12+ years of co-leading Post Typography, I stepped back from the day-to-day operations late last year. Currently, I occasionally advise on certain projects at Post while my focus has shifted to my own work as a free agent. I’ve continued some existing client relationships while also seeking new teams, collaborators, and clients to work with in Baltimore and elsewhere. Maybe that’s you? Drop me a line and let‘s find out.
