About Me

Hello from Brooklyn. I split my time between designing websites and publications for clients and making my own books. When not working, I’m probably thinking about food, music, or dogs.


I run a design studio named Another. You can view some work over there.

The Book

In 2012, I wrote The Shape of Design, an anti-textbook about the creative process and the possibilities of good design when it gets out in the world. You can pick up a printed copy or read a bit online.
