What is your approach to teaching?
"My approach to teaching is to encourage close observation of historical precedents and treat the actual procedures as if one were learning a musical instrument."
What inspires your own work?
"My own work is actuated by a love of all forms of lettering, and a desire to communicate as much as I can to anyone who is interested."
