He went on to graduate from the Rhode Island School of Design in 2000 and traveled to New York City that summer to be hired by Scholastic Books as an assistant designer. He then moved to Brooklyn, New York, and Greenwillow Books where he was promoted to designer, and later, senior designer. After fourteen-hundred days, he left Greenwillow to become the new art director for Abrams Books for Young Readers and Amulet Books. He is still there to this day. He has designed such series as Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Origami Yoda, NERDS and The Sisters Grimm, in addition to a vast amount of picture books, such as I Had a Favorite Dress, Iggy Peck, Architect and Huff and Puff.
