Hello from Toledo! I am an Assistant Professor of Graphic Design at Bowling Green State University (BGSU) and a practicing designer. My work has been published in several books on graphic design and has received award recognitions;
most recently in the 2013 International Design Awards by HOW Magazine where the
You Are Here Toledo Project was recognized as Outstanding. I am a co-founder & organizer of
SWEAT (Summer Workshop for Experimentation and Thought) and co-editor of the book
Toledo Remanufactured: Extracting a City's Graphic Culture (published by the SWEAT Workshop, 2007) and
ElevenDozen (published by the SWEAT Workshop, 2010). I am a founding board member (2007), former president (2011-13) and current Community Outreach Chair of the AIGA Toledo Chapter.
In 2010, I co-chaired
response_ability, an AIGA Design Educators Conference held in Toledo, Ohio.
