"It was by pure accident that I became an editorial designer. New York Magazine needed an art assistant, and I just happened to pass the interview. It was 1995. Since then, I have worked at more than a dozen magazines, done countless redesigns, and designed and started seven magazines from scratch. In recent years, I was art director at GQ (2003-2010), design director at W Magazine (2011-2012), Creative Director at Bloomberg Pursuits (2012-2014) and Design Director of Achtung Mode (currently). I also was a lead designer on the recent re-launch of NY Times Magazine, and I collaborated with them on a few special issues in 2015-2016. My work has been nominated and has received numerous awards from Society of Publication Designers, as well as ASME (American Society of Magazine editors), AIGA and other organizations. But, honors aside, I love what I do. I love editorial design and love designing for print. It never gets old to take plain words and to give them an exciting visual presentation through photography, type, and architecture of the story.’'
