I am, first and foremost, someone who loves being creative and learning. A passion for art and calligraphy prompted me to start The Postman’s Knock in 2012 as a custom illustration and graphic design business. However, as TPK matured, I found that I enjoyed maintaining the blog and helping others to pick up new skills — like calligraphy and watercolor painting — more than anything else! While I take on the very occasional custom project for fun, I now define myself as a teacher and a blogger.
TPK has given me the opportunity to be a published author (also featured in how-to books), design materials for Hollywood weddings, and collaborate on projects with big-name companies. I couldn’t have asked for a better career, and I would encourage anyone who is thinking about taking a leap to go for it! If you’d like to read about how I got started, you can do so here.
Credit must go where credit is due: the beautiful, sleek design of this website is my spouse’s contribution to TPK. Hernán, an aerospace engineer who moonlights as a web developer, is the one who makes sure everything runs smoothly. If there’s something amiss with the TPK site, it’s fixed within seconds thanks to him. Hernán and I live in gorgeous Boulder, Colorado, USA, where we enjoy eating, exercising, travel, and spending time with friends and family.
