Our Team

We all have one thing in common: a love of paper. Whether we came to this passion early or late, we adore paper – touching it and seeing all the beautiful ways it’s transformed in the act of communication. We’re here to help you make the most out of all the resources PaperSpecs has to offer. So you can create your most engaging print design ever. Nice to meet you!

Sabine, Paper Queen

You know her as PaperSpecs’ founder, president and CEO, but let’s talk about the important stuff. Sabine hails from Germany, where she started as a designer. She moved to Australia where her penchant for paper drew her to actually making paper at Creative Paper Tasmania (“a messy, but very empowering and eye-opening experience”).

As a current U.S. resident and tea connoisseur, there’s always a large variety of loose black tea on hand – no green tea in her cupboard … way too healthy. Helpful tip: it’s best not to call her before she’s had her first cup in the morning.

She says she loves doing anything artsy from going to museums to seeing independent films, but given the amount of work she accomplishes in any given day, we’re not sure when she finds the time for this. Her favorite color is yellow, the warm nearly orangey kind, because it reflects her nearly never-ending optimism.

Jessica, The Planner

From galleries and museums to non-profits and more, Jessica’s prior event planning experience and creativity have made her an invaluable part of our team. When she’s not coordinating our Live and virtual [unboxed] happenings and helping our PRO members, you will find her enjoying quality time with her husband and toddler, or putting her BFA degree to good use painting abstract landscapes and illustrating comics. (We’ve asked to see the comics but her polite refusals lead us to believe that some of them might be about us.)

Aaron, THE Man (literally)

When not cobbling together the latest PaperTalks newsletter, Aaron can be found guzzling Arrowhead Sparkling Water and further proving his devotion to paper by doodling through at least a ream or two annually and ordering books from Amazon (and berating himself for it later). The author of several books, he is currently trying to wrap his head around the fact that he can actually wait for someone else to write a book about his current cinematic or televisual obsession rather than writing it himself. (He needs help but refuses the chocolate.)

Katherine, Guiding Hand

A natural born helper, Katherine tackles a wide variety of challenges behind the scenes at PaperSpecs. (She’s clocked significant time in TV, film and recording studios over the years, so she knows what she’s doing.) A crafty person at heart, she loves creating unique pieces from paper, be it through origami, zentangle art drawing, and crafting 3D paper snowflakes around the holidays. When a spare moment presents itself, you will find her composing spoken word poetry, working on portraiture and fashion photography, or boxing – the punching kind, that is. (Though she’d probably be a dab hand at the paper variety, too.)
