I am the great-grandaughter of Norwegian newspaper printers on one side of the family and on the other, commercial printers and small book binding operations. Some of this history was unknown before embarking on this journey, but it makes it all the more interesting.

In light of that history, I decided to return to school for a MFA. At the University of Alabama, I learned how to letterpress print, book bind and make paper. I graduated in 2012. Today, I own At Some Point Press & Bindery and carry on the family business in a small way.
