I draw a lot, and sometimes write, and I make many things for people who love books (see them at Ideal Bookshelf!).
I was born in Atlanta, formed in Manhattan, am in love with Berlin, and mostly live in Maui with my Swiss husband and two weird cats.
In 2012 I made a book called My Ideal Bookshelf, and have a new one called Bibliophile coming out in August 2018, with Chronicle Books.

In past incarnations I’ve studied anthropology at Davidson College, co-founded three companies (including Bolt.com, one of the very first social networks), and won awards for my graphic and interior design skills (including being on Oprah!).
