I’m a book lover with an appreciation for literature and a genuine interest in publishing. After graduating from the University of Toronto with a degree in English Literature, I discovered my passion for book design while completing a certificate course in publishing at Ryerson Univeristy. This passion lead me across the pond to the University of Reading in England where I completed a master’s degree in book design. During my year-long master’s degree, I completed 5 practical design projects, learned different book binding techniques, spent time in the University of Reading’s extensive archives working with some very old books and completed an original research dissertation (National or District Trade Unions: The Question of Amalgamating Trade Unions for the Betterment of 19th Century British Print House Workers).
Now working in Toronto, Ontario as a book designer, this website showcases my most recent freelance work. Please feel free to contact me, I would love to hear from you!
