My life changed directions about a year ago; new city, new business, new outlook. One thing that I have not found enough time for in all this change is creativity. I will be blogging about all of the things I make, whenever I find the time to make them.
Other things about me:
I have a Bachelors of Arts in Sociology with a minor in Counseling and Educational Psychology.
I generally prefer to be outside.
I have a golden retriever named Chunk. He was named after Chunk from The Goonies; when I got him I had big plans to teach him to do the truffle shuffle, but that never came to be. He does what he wants.
