I currently work as a graphic designer at Indiana University Press where I design a variety of digital and print marketing materials such as catalogs, posters, and ads, as well as journal and book covers.
Editorial design for Mcweeney’s and The Believer magazine.
I have enjoyed designing posters for a number of organizations and events, including literary readings, film screenings, lecture series, and others.

CA Home + Design
CA Home + Design is a design and architecture magazine, where I worked as a graphic designer.
One way that I keep up on my “making skills” is by participating in Maker Mondays, an initiative at IU that promotes different “making-based projects” every Monday. Some of these projects take places at the IU Library, some in the HCI/d Design Studio, and some off-campus at different workshops, events, makerspaces, coffee shops, or homes.
Recording the Future: Grounded Speculations in Chernobyl
Recording the Future is a speculative design project (with Danial Qaurooni) that explores posthuman design in the context of environmentally damaged landscapes, such as Chernobyl. The designs included in this project aim to imagine and inspire new ways of thinking about the role of technology in the environment. For example,: a lantern that augments tree communication by processing and spreading pheromones for trees in urban space, a set of radiation detection devices that alert animals of the most dangerous places in mostly human-less environments such as Chernobyl and Fukushima, and future-food products that process radioactive material by putting small amounts into common food products, such as flour, sugar, and tea.
The images included here are very much “in-progress” as we make our way through this complex and exciting project. We plan to have an exhibit of our finished work in Bloomington, in the spring of 2019. I will post final images after the exhibition. Stay tuned for details…
