As creative and design lead at some of the biggest brands in publishing I've been lucky enough to work closely with the best photographers, editors, artists and designers in the business. Together, we've published hundreds of issues, surprised our fans with successful and distinctive redesigns, distributed our content in new and innovative ways and met the challenges of an ever evolving industry. We have received recognition for our work from the American Society of Magazine Editors (ASME), the Society of Publication Designers (SPD) and others including the National Magazine Award for General Excellence (Field & Stream) in 2009.
