Logomark and printed matter for the series Ground, by Radius. This series was a a three-part, site-specific commissioned radio series that focused on radio’s direct physical connection to the Earth. GROUND investigated how the Earth manipulates, fragments, and fluctuates radio transmission and reception. Radius GROUND Series featured site-specific works in Chicago from national and international artists and each part of the series was performed, installed, and broadcast from such places as a greenhouse research laboratory, aboard a boat in Lake Michigan, and underground, deep inside a natural cave. The series examined how energies, organisms, and geologic material influence the electromagnetic spectrum.  

For the logomark, I took the Earth Ground symbol, and disconnected it to make an abstract shape that would reflect the overarching idea of the series: how Earth and humans influence and alter the electromagnetic spectrum.

I’m a designer with a background in photography, publishing, and librarianship.  

Most recently, I was an in-house Designer at Harvard Innovation Labs. Freelance clients include Hindman Auctions (Freeman’s | Hindman), Pillar VC, First to Knock,  Jay Youngdahl, and more.

Before my career in design I was an academic librarian at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

In my spare time I maintain a personal art practice that is based in photography. Since 2017, I have published and edited Challenger, a BMX magazine that takes multiple forms. Its current form is a monthly subscriber only newsletter.
