For nearly 15 years I’ve had the pleasure of collaborating with amazing clients—creating custom lettering artwork for established brands, classic books, postage stamps, and so much more. I've travelled the world speaking at creative conferences and colleges, and I've befriended innumerable internet strangers while navigating the depths of social media. I cut my creative teeth in Philadelphia and Brooklyn but am now (and forever) based in beautiful downtown Oakland, California. When I’m not drafting letterforms, manipulating beziers, writing kids books, or letterpressing on my Vandercook, I’m doing my best to help others find the same happiness and fulfillment that I’ve found in my work.
