Service Description

I am a freelance book designer with a background in communications and advertising. I've been providing publishing services for clients for about four years and have worked on hundreds of books and ebooks.

I love books. I love words. Even better, I love working with both of them.

It doesn't matter to me so much whether its a print book or a PDF one - I love both because of all the design possibilities! - whether its a Kindle file or an epub - I love the challenge of HTML! What matters is that I get to continue my love affair with books by helping to create them, by helping people share their ideas, stories, lives in print - actual AND virtual.

I hope you'll give me the opportunity and privilege of helping you share your words on a page or screen very soon. I look forward to making your book and/or ebook look its very best!
