He previously taught at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where he was art director of the literary-arts journal, Ninth Letter, and the inaugural director of Figure One, the School of Art + Design's off-campus exhibition space. His publication design work has been recognized by PRINT and Graphis.
