Wonder & Wander

Hey, and welcome to my site. 

This is my space where I share some of my professional work, personal projects, and hobbies. Browse at your leisure and

get to know me a little bit. 

I have huge respect for the craft within handmade things,

and look forward to a lifetime of learning that's ahead of me.  

I'm also fascinated by all kinds of design, and enjoy connecting

the randomly scattered dots between our human experiences.
