LET'S SKIP THE AWKWARD INTRODUCTIONS.

Here I am with a lizard.

An entreprenuerial soul in an art directors body.

TL;DR WORDS ABOUT ME
While I am technically an Art Director by trade, most days I'm more of an entrepreneurial-minded "McGyver". My curiosities tend to lead me down deeper and stranger paths than can be defined in that one title. I consider this exploration "building my creative toolbelt", because you never know what might inspire the best solution to a problem. My current experiment involves mushroom mycelium, a kombucha scoby, and a shoemaking last.
Other things I geek-out on: people watching like it's my job, embroidery art, bad-television, making shoes by hand, fermention (especially Kvass), graphic novels, storylines in video-games, collaborating with people more talented than myself, new media, creepy oddities, herbalism, and foraging for wild mushrooms (the culinary kind). I also really love words, but I am way too long-winded to be a copywriter.
Mostly, I just really like making new connections & things I've never made before.
