I am an award-winning book designer, researcher and editor with over 10 years of experience. Originally from Venezuela, I am currently based in New York City and hold ongoing artistic collaborations in Latin America and Europe.
Having Caribbean and Middle eastern heritage and a profound love of books has deeply influenced my work, giving it a specific hybrid nature. My experience encompasses designing for newspapers, directing creative projects for academic institutions, printed matter for children’s editorial and project management for many publications both nationally and internationally.
I am a current member of the American Printing History Association (APHA), Type Director’s Club (TDC) and American Institute of Graphic Arts (AIGA). I am the founder and editor of Letra Muerta, a small press I founded with master printer Javier Aizpurua with his renowned press Ex Libris. Besides teaching, I collaborate with companies such as Penguin RH, Kenning Editions, CAAW, Ugly Duckling Presse + particular clients. I love literature and philosophy, coffee, designer jewelry and dogs.
