How it started

Over a decade ago, a humble monk encouraged me to start on an endeavor that would challenge me beyond anything I had known. Provisioned with a box of letters written on a typewriter, I set off on a journey through the world of books. 

Since then, I have built a publishing house and design studio that has created over 100 titles for public and private circulation. My publishing endeavors over these years have spanned seeking out rare books for republication to creating contemporary eBooks and websites for publishing’s digital age. I’ve worked with monks, mountaineers, movie producers, business owners, non-profits, and folks who love mules.

This publishing house runs on passion. A strong community of friends and family shares that spirit and continues to push this endeavor forward. I am thankful for the friendships, knowledge, and amazing experiences that publishing brings into my life.

I am based in beautiful Bishop, California, which sits on the eastern slope of the Sierra Nevada mountain range.
