Creative Direction and Design for an Independent Environmental Publication

Creative Director
2016–2020

Silica Magazine is your field guide to the anthropocene: reporting on the planet’s evolving landscapes through investigative journalism and interactive art. I helped co-found Silica in 2016 and have served as Creative Director across four annual issues, crafting its brand, campaigns, editorial art, interactives, and web and print platforms. Over the years, we've collaborated with dozens of talented artists, designers, musicians, technologists, and writers, crafting annual issues that combine disciplined reporting and cutting-edge experiences to reach a global audience.


We've done this by partnering with a variety of media, art and non-profit organizations, including Engadget (engadget.com), The Institute for Queer Ecology (queerecology.org), Imprint Projects (imprintprojects.com), and The Institute for Interspecies Arts and Relations (ifiaar.org). Silica's brand is raw, brutal, and playful — telling real stories on a planet of the unreal landscapes of the age of human impact.
