I work as a technology project manager, but when I'm not at the office, I'm always making things of my own. I especially love illustrating, writing and design.

Here at Skillshare, I focus on teaching printmaking classes -- everything from stencils to woodblock.

I find printmaking inspiring because anyone can quickly start making successful prints with very few tools. It really opens the doors to producing your vision on all kinds of materials: t-shirts, walls, stationery, labels and so much more.
