    Profile

    As a life-long typographer, designer and artist, I am extremely devoted to typography, books, the printed word, and ink on paper in general. My interest in making books stems from a passion for books instilled in me by my mother when I was a young boy.

    At Parsons School of Design, I teach Typography 1, Explorations in Typography, Typography & Visual Design, Advanced Typography, and Graphic Design

    Currently I am founder and owner of Interrobang Design Studio. I am a winner of the 2002 Graphic Arts Fellowship Award, and a 2005 Parsons Faculty Development Grant. I design, bind, and make miniature books in limited editions. A number of my miniature books have been acquired by the Kellen Design Archives and the Thomas J Watson Research Library of the Metropolitan Museum of Art for their permanent collection.
