Since my early post-secondary days, I have always had a passion for printmaking, graphic design and photography. As such, I have a dangerously gigantic collection of art books, vintage cameras, and now, masses of type and graphics for printing. I got into letterpress printing doing a simple book design at school. I really wanted to create the cover with an embossed feel so I thought I'd buy a small table top press to do some letterpress printing for that cover. After contacting Jim Rimmer who helped me put the shop together, things began to get out of hand. That one small press became 2 presses, then 3, then 4 and the rest is history. I'm currently finishing a BA in Communication Design, and BA Fine Arts
photography at the Emily Carr Institute of Art & Design.

From as young as I can remember, art was always a part of my life – give me a pen and paper and I'd be happily entertained for hours.  It was inevitable when i dropped Math classes in high school to make room to schedule for more Fine Arts, leading me to eventually receive my BA in Fine Arts at Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design.  Although I've explored many different mediums, my greatest love will always be painting.  Currently, I am fortunate enough to be balancing work life and creating art at Unison Letterpress.
