WHERE I'M FROM

My parents both grew up on farms, so I grew up learning how to work, fix things, and solve problems. They always have a project going on, and I am still called in as a design consultant/unpaid laborer. Going on scrap paper plans and shoestring budgets, creativity is the first tool I learned how to use.

WHAT I DO

I caught this love of projects and improvements from my parents, which is why I became a designer. But even in my free time, I'm usually making or learning something. Examples include: caning chairs, sewing clothes, crocheting sweaters, cooking, and whatever I decide to start next — I think it's going to be wood block printing.
