Info

I am a graphic designer, book maker, and freelance odd-jobber very quick to learn new skills. I was born and raised in London before moving to the US to attend Columbia University, where I earned a BA in English and History. ​

Some things that currently interest me: grid-like designs in NYC, the golden ratio, social "rules" from the twentieth century, the moon, Greek typography, and my home countries: England, Greece, and America.
