I am a relatively new collector. My interest in typewriters was sparked when I inherited my grandmother's Royal KMM. Typewriters fascinate me because they're at the intersection of history, technology, and social progress.

I work as an attorney in Denver, Colorado. I grew up near Bowling Green, Kentucky, and graduated from the University of Kentucky College of Law. You can follow my typewriter collection on Instagram at @rockymountaintypewriter.
