I'm a designer and educator who spent the last few years transitioning my career from maker to problem solver. In the spring of 2016 I closed the letterpress stationery business that I ran for eight years, Pressbound, to pursue my new passion for user experience and interaction designer. You can read more about that journey and transition on my blog.

With over fifteen years of experience in the design business, I've worked at a variety of jobs in publishing, higher education, at small boutique studios, and freelancing for myself; as well as teaching students publication design for nearly ten years in the writing, literature, and publishing program at Emerson College. I currently work full-time as the design manager on the enrollment marketing team at Northeastern University.
