I am associate professor and chair of the nationally-ranked Graduate Communications Design Department at Pratt Institute in New York, where I teach typography, thesis and teaching practicum.
I am co-author and designer (with former studio mate Matt Woolman) of three internationally published titles on typography and media – including the best-selling titles Type in Motion and Moving Type, Designing for Time and Space – and have written on graphic design for How magazine and various other design publications. My design work has been recognized by Print magazine, the AIGA (50 Books/50 Covers), and Connecticut Art Director’s Club. I previously held faculty positions at The University of Connecticut, VCU, Mercy College (where I was also Chair), and The Wanganui School of Design, New Zealand. I also consult professionally and lectures on typography and design.
