About
Hi my name is Graham. I am a New York City-based designer and entrepreneur. My story goes like this - I got an early start at the age of 13, memorizing fonts and coding websites as an apprentice to the art director of a classic Land Rover parts business and popular Land Rover Magazine my parents started in rural Vermont. While not known as a typical incubator for design and business, the thriving "build it ourselves" environment inspired me learn a broad set of crafts, from design to engineering and business as a means to "project building." As far as education, I studied Business, Economics, and Photojournalism, then moved to New York to work for Magnum Photos, National Geographic Society, powerHouse Books, blogged for NPR.org and later co-founded Visura.co.

Currently, I am a UX Lead at Shutterstock and remain focused on using software to empower the modern creative class to impact the world one story at a time.
