Neon Speaks program

The program's trim size is 5.5 x 8.5 inches, and was a collaborative design effort with Randall Ann Homan at SFneon. Neon cowboy twins cover photo by Will Durham of Nevada Neon Project.

Neon Map+Poster of Portland 

This keepsake map and poster of Portland Oregon’s best neon signs was developed in tandem with my first neon walking tour of Portland. The map was diligently researched and as up-to-date as possible. The poster side includes images from signs around town, each marked with corresponding numbers to signs listed on the map.

Belltown Paper

One of the first publications I had creative control over was the Belltown Paper, a neighborhood paper in Seattle, of which I was also the editor from 2000 - 2004. 

The masthead is my design, and I did all the photography and created an icon for each monthly edition, usually from photos of architectural details around the neighborhood.
