I currently own a graphic design and letterpress studio in downtown Lancaster, PA. After visiting our local printing museum, years of training and taking classes, I started buying presses and taking on jobs. While my day to day print work consists mainly of wedding invitations and business cards, I try to focus on getting the community involved whenever possible. I open up the shop, set up the presses for people to come visit and print their own posters. I also organize an annual print crawl that involves a variety of different local print shops who all work alongside our very own PCA&D students who design the poster. I am always looking to collaborate whenever possible to produce personalized cards, posters or promotional pieces.
Teaching Philosophy: I incorporate a great deal of my real world experience into my classroom to try to prepare students for their careers as much as possible. It is very important to me to help each and every student to find their own voice and style in design while helping them to create well thought out and well produced pieces. Our art and design students of today are what help make our world more informed and beautiful tomorrow!
