Moseley Road, Inc., was a Westchester-based book packager and international rights firm.

In the company’s small environment, I worked directly with the Art Director and Editorial Director, as well as being a point of contact for an outside illustrator and photographer. I worked on interior page layouts for an Anatomy of Exercise book and DVD series for Hinkler, as well as other titles including history, religion and other non-fiction books. Beyond layouts, I completed photo-research and production or a line of 2013 wall calendars and helped draw maps in Adobe Illustrator for The Atlas of Military History.
