- How You Got Involved In Letterpress Printing
My father had a hobby printshop. He started collecting type and presses in the early 1970s. I moved out of state, but every trip home I would print with my dad. In 2009 I decided to get my own press so I could learn more instead of starting from scratch a couple of times a year. After having the luxury of working in a fully equipped shop, it was quite a shock to discover just how much equipment one needs to print. And the more you get the more you want.

- Education & Training
I learned from my father. While living in Michigan I learned a lot from the very knowledgeable members of the Monks and Friars Chappel as well as some wonderful people in the Michigan Letterpress Guild. I am so grateful all the help I received from these folks.
