She is the owner of Typecast Press, a letterpress studio in the Hampden neighborhood of Baltimore, www.typecastpress.com. A big fan of farmers, great food, and dining out, she developed the restaurant identities of all of Spike Gjerde’s ground-breaking restaurants. She is always up for discussing Globe projects and ideas, a well as showing off the heavy metal at her own shop.
