After working for one of the most respected magazines about the yachting industry for over a decade, I declared that I was starting my own agency, and that I wanted to be a book designer. Over the next ten years I was retained to design and publish five books through my agency. Each one is special in its own way.
Above are a few conceptual covers I designed for a Nestlé USA retrospective book.
True Stories of Adventure, Drama and Tragedy at Sea is a collection of ten short stories from around the globe that captivate the reader. From hurricanes and pirates to sinkings and crocodiles, the true stories are something you'll never forget. Written by yachting industry veterans Buddy Haack and Doug Hoogs.
It was a pleasure to design An American Classic: The Yachts and Ships of Jack Hargrave. Commissioned by  Michael Joyce and edited by Marilyn Mower, this book honors the grandfather of naval architecture, Jack Hargrave.
