I am a senior designer at Second Melody, a branding agency in Morristown, NJ. While I work in a variety of areas of design, I specialize in typeface design and lettering. I believe in embracing the constraints of a functioning alphabet; to create strong paragraphs, cohesive systems and beautiful words. Talking with other designers and agencies helps me spark joy, so reach out and say hello. I am currently on the board of directors for the United Design Guild.
When I'm not reading about, thinking about or working with type, I love to read short stories and fiction. I'm also a reliable penpal, if anyone's interested.
Polite Type is housed in a small studio in Caldwell, NJ, about 40% of which is books.
