Coming from a rather unique background (as far as careers go), I originally trained as a bespoke tailor and then had a brief stint making custom automotive interiors. In 2009, I changed gears and have been actively involved in both graphic and type design. I graduated with honors from The State University of New York Fredonia with a BFA in Graphic Design.

My type history
Along with designing and releasing my own type under the name JTD, I also design type at Samarskaya & Partners. In the past, I have been found at both P22 Type Foundry and Hamilton Wood Type Foundry. I am available for freelance work in both in graphic and type design and would be more than happy to work with you.
