About

Me c. mid-2013“The details of my life are quite in-con-se-quen-tial…” But, should you want to know…

I grew up in small-town Iowa, graduating with honors from Iowa State University. In an ever-eventful career as a graphic designer, I have worked for a private university, a boutique design studio and a craft products retail chain, as well as various nonprofit institutions and several advertising agencies. I currently operate an independent design practice, Modern Alchemy LLC.

I’m the author of Brilliant Deduction: The Story of Real-Life Great Detectives and Cotton’s Library. I live in glamorous Lakewood, Ohio.
