I am by trade a graphic designer. I usually tell stories through images, logos, packages or infographics but for this project, I am using words. I wrote and designed a book about the history of 1960s gift wrap ( that sold 20,000 copies for Chronicle Books. After researching my own family history I became fascinated with the journey of my ancestors compelling me to write a new book.
