About Me


to become an itinerant milliner


Moved to San Francisco, figuring out the scene, loving everything so far!!

I love music. It seems everyone does, but my life is essentially lived to a soundtrack. If I'm not listening to something I'll be whistling or humming or drumming my fingers on whatever's close by. I'm trying to learn every instrument. So far, I can play the piano, violin, saw, accordion, and guitar. I consider myself a creativity enabler - if I hear a good idea I try to help that person bring it to fruition. If you need an extra, a vocalist, a stand-in, an accompanist, a photographer, a builder, a place to work, or food to eat while you're too busy creating something, I'm your girl. I can do that.
If you need a computer programmer, a drummer, an animator, or something else I can't do personally, I will find you a person who can.

Creating is what I live for and any way I can help out I will. ^_^

Last year, I went out on my grand adventure after I finished undergrad. At the end of August I geared up and puttered out into the world. I lived out of my car and drove from Texas to Florida and all the way up to Montreal, stopping a lot of places along the way. Spent some time on an organic sheep farm in Pennsylvania, and explored Canada from Toronto to Montreal before heading back to the states and driving out to California. I know, I drove like a crazy person. I can't help it. I love to move around! After farming some more in Taos, New Mexico, I headed back to Georgia and now I'm starting grad school! I tried to make lots of things out of materials I fond on my journey and had a fabulous time.
