Since 1990, I have been producing periodicals, marketing packages, and books for clients across several industries and disciplines. I work closely with my clients and printers to create effective packages to promote their businesses or causes.

book design

Since 1998, I have been the designer and typesetter for our family business, Adams Press. We have helped authors produce textbooks, business books, fiction, memoirs, and children’s books on a wide range of budgets and print run sizes. I have also worked independently with authors and editors to design and produce books for professional organizations, independent authors, and businesses.

periodical design

For 14 years (until the dissolution of the organization), I was the designer and production artist for Midwest Engineer, the magazine of the Western Society of Engineers. Working closely with the editor and executive director, I built this quarterly magazine with provided copy as well as custom and stock photography. Later I took over the production of American Garage, a print and then web-based magazine about electric vehicles, the American automotive industry, and the lure of the open road.
