Handmade

I like to dabble. I've experimented with screenprinting, acrylic painting, making my own furniture, a Second City writing class...if I didn't have to work for a living - I would truly enjoy taking classes on anything and everything. But as of late, my hobbies have shifted a little. I spend a good amount of my spare time designing intricate train routes and building towering Lego structures with my 3-year old son, Henry.
