Life as I See It

A sketchbook is a lot like the U.S. Constitution. If you invest time, thought, and passion into it, the pages can add up to a living, breathing document. Here are a few recent spreads from my sketchbook.

Lyme Aid

Here's a new piece for Rutgers Magazine. Tick-born Lyme disease is a growing nemesis to those who live near nature, and it's very difficult to diagnose in patients. Researchers at this university are developing a far more reliable test to positively identify this blight. That's great news for people afflicted with this difficult-to-detect disease. Below are some of the sketches I submitted for this story...

As someone who has suffered from Lyme disease. I'm thrilled that Rutgers is conducting this important research. A special thanks to art director John Van Cleaf for another fascinating assignment!

Poker at Princeton

I was very bullish on this assignment for Princeton Alumni Weekly. The story addresses how playing poker can help prepare you for a job on Wall Street. Mastering this game involves math skills, understanding  quantitative reasoning and psychology, and having the ability to manage risk. These tools are all valuable for working in the securities industry. Below are some ideas for this story.

A special thanks to art director Marianne Nelson for another fun project!
