Part of my work involves teaching design, writing, and publishing to students as young as 10. We also create books and weird products together, and generally have a pretty good time.
Claremont Middle School Design Partnership
Last year, I partnered with Claremont Middle School's after school maker program to create custom items for the bookstore. We worked together over several weeks to design and produce student projects to sell in the bookstore, including an emergency bookmark necklace, and this amazing, "Where the books tho" bookshelf sign.
Oakland School for the Arts Collaboration
For the last three or so years, I've collaborated with the Literary Arts department at Oakland School of the Arts to create book covers and guts for the senior students.
Santa Cruz Writes
I work as the lead designer on Santa Cruz Writes student publication program, overseeing all aspects of the design of all publications.
I worked to reboot the Youth Speaks Poetry book series with poet Jade Cho, producing her first book, "In the Tongue of Ghosts."
