I'm a designer and educator 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 a career as a user experience and interaction designer. You can read more about that journey and transition on the 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 a UX/UI designer in the marketing department at Northeastern University.
