I have almost two decades of publishing and layout experience, including over eight years of book design. My day job is as the designer for Tin House Books. I've also worked with Horsethief Books, Turtle Point Press, and others. Authors I've designed for include Ursula K. Le Guin, Morgan Parker, Melissa Broder (of So Sad Today), Tommy Pico, Margot Livesey, Barbara Gowdy, Claire Fuller, Charles D'Ambrosio, Lacy M. Johnson, Martha Baillie, Hanif Adburraqib, and more. I've also worked with a number of self-published authors.
