I came to bookbinding through my professional work as a graphic designer and illustrator. Designing publications led me to a desire to touch the books I was "making" and have a more active hand in their creation. I took my first bookbinding class in 1999, and it changed my life forever. I am nearing completion of my degree in Design Fine Bookbinding at the American Academy of Bookbinding where I have spent many years in study.
I live and work out of my home bookbinding and letterpress studio in Niwot, Colorado. I also serve as the the Vice President of the Book Arts League in Boulder where I teach bookbinding classes and letterpress printing.
