I have been a publication designer in the Seattle area for over 25 years, working as an Art Director for Alaska Airlines Magazine, Microsoft, Eddie Bauer, Lands End, McGraw-Hill, KCTS 9 and Seattle Opera. As a book designer I have been honored to work with talented writers, poets, photographers, artists and publishers co-creating living books of soul and purpose.
