I’ve been a designer for years (I remember rotary phones) in the print industry. I’ve worked until 2am at newspapers in Texas, Florida and New Jersey; art directed photo shoots with models, food, clowns and one zebroid*; and I’ve literally worked with the circus on a fashion shoot. I’ve designed weekly, monthly, and quarterly magazines. I’ve also redesigned a few publications, helped launch a magazine in central Florida, and worked on tablet designs for a few brands.
I’m lucky to have had the chance to work on lots of random and awesome projects. Sometimes it’s working with the photo editor at Time Out New York to style 50+ pies for a food story (yes, we tasted every pie). Other times, it's making fake energy drinks for a Sports cover at the Asbury Park Press. For The Good Life at the Jersey Shore I had two models on a roof deck for a summer swimsuit shoot during the dead of winter. Recently, at mental_floss I art directed and designed a feature with Daniel Radcliffe; it's the closest I’ll ever come to going to Hogwarts.
I’ve had the privilege of working with some of the coolest colleagues at publications like Time Out New York, Entertainment Weekly, New York Magazine, Popular Mechanics and Mental_floss.
If you are still reading this you probably know me or are an illustrator/photographer interested in freelancing for mental_floss. If so, please email me at email@example.com.
