I have retired from a long career as an information designer and teacher and am now focusing on my personal art. 


I was a faculty instructor at Michigan State University where I taught both creativity and infographics. Prior to joining academia, I was the Director of Information Graphics at Newsweek magazine, The Associated Press, The National Sports Daily, the N.Y. Daily News. and United Press International. 

As a data designer and creative thinker, I consulted with numerous organizations on the topics of visual communication and creative thinking. I have presented at three TEDx talks, at Harvard University's "Political Analytics Conference" and twice at the South by Southwest (SXSW) technology conference on the “Power of Visual Storytelling."
