What inspires you?

Nature, old buildings, patterns, patina, and beautiful weirdness!

How does creativity play into your work?

Creativity for me means staying true to yourself. There are endless ways to be and show up creatively,  but it feels most authentic when you can confidently tap into your personal style, values and aesthetic on a regular basis.

How has Cowork at Center for Craft helped you?

It's given me a space to work around other makers and creatives. Working for yourself can be a silo at times and it's nice to break out of that for a while!

What song, author, YouTuber, podcast, activity, etc. gets you out of a creative funk?

Thrifting and antiquing always help get my creative juices flowing. I'll also listen to a business or design podcast if I'm feeling unmotivated and that usually sparks some ideas or inspiration or simply just gives me the initiative to do the next thing.

What advice would you give your 16 year old self?

Be Brave. Listen to your gut. And don't be afraid to put in the work toward a vision you have for yourself that feels out of reach. Solutions are there.

What is your latest project?

My work is usually a constant juggle of smaller and larger projects and 2020-2021 has put major delays in our normal timelines. There's a doctor's office gut renovation project I've been working on remotely that should be done next month. I'll also be wrapping up a full home decorating project at an awesome mountain house here in town (hopefully) the end of the year.
