Hello! Thanks for stopping by. I love to create visual systems for risktakers and tastemakers. I am a creative director and designer, currently for Upstatement in NYC. News and editorial projects, cultural institutions, and anything food-related are some of my favorites to work on. I also enjoy teaching and writing, and I'd love to tell you about where to find the best barbecue in my hometown of Kansas City.
