About me & my work:

We publish beautiful art books for museums, galleries, and artists. That's my day job. But I am also developing Tieton, a small orchard town in Central Washington state, into an incubator for artisan and industrial design businesses. We make handmade art books, produce a gift line of printed and hand-bound merchandise, and design and produce typographic mosaic signage. We help realize other designers' urban creative ambitions by employing and training talented rural workers and underused buildings, which in turn results in creative place-making in Tieton.
