MY STORY

As one who believes that we all have a story to tell, in the waning years of my father's life, I determined to capture his story. And so it was that in 2007 I wrote Always a Marine, a book chronicling dad's eight-year, WWII experience in the Pacific theater. After publishing it on Blurb.com they contacted me asking if I would like to offer my services to potential Blurb customers. I soon had a presence on their website and my work was featured in a book they published, How to Make a Gorgeous Photo Book, as well as Petra Vogt's Create Your Own Photo Book and Das Eigene Fotobuch (German publication). And so my journey into book design began, and the ride's been most enjoyable.

COVER DESIGN

The first impression

Contrary to the old adage, a lot of people actually do judge a book by its cover. Many of my clients are individuals who simply need the perfect cover.

PAGE LAYOUT

Every page captivating

Creating strong visual appeal is as essential as readability. From font selection to illustration and graphic placement, each page gets my special attention.
