At the Southern Nevada Health District, we published an employee magazine called District Dish, which featured articles about and for our employees. These are two of my favorite covers. One features an animal-loving employee who helped a patient’s pregnant pooch give birth to these four adorable pups in the office restroom — no kidding! The other is the result of a memorable photo shoot we held with four of our immunization team superstars.

As freelance Art Director for the Gay and Lesbian Community Center of Baltimore between 2011 and 2015, I had the pleasure of crafting all covers and layouts for Gay Life magazine the first four issues of the annual Baltimore LGBT Visitors Guide, which we published in collaboration with Visit Baltimore.

Over the course of nearly seven years at Stonewall Publishing in Las Vegas — during which time I progressed from graphic designer to Editor/Creative Director — I designed all cover and editorial layouts for more than 100 issues of QVegas magazine and several speciality publications we produced, including The Findlay Voice, a custom magazine for a local Cadillac dealership. Refreshing the look and feel of QVegas every few years was among the most exciting aspects of the job.
