I got my first camera when I was 5. It was a Kodak Instamatic. I still own one, just for sentimental reasons. I’ve always had a camera nearby. My father is a very talented photographer and that was my area of study at SVA in New York. After SVA I had the amazing stroke of […]
Sophia and I took Will out for his first round of trick-or-treating this afternoon. She’s been coaching him how how to say it for the past week or so, like the fantastic big sister she is. He toddled after her, climbing up stairs, announcing “tree a tree” and giving a polite “tee you” when the […]
Will, Dave, and I loaded up and headed out to an area flea market this morning. I’ve been nursing a bug to not just sell new stuff in my shop, but to find cool vintage stuff to re-purpose and craft into some new little thing. Today my laser beam focus was on silver plate. I […]

Just tall enough.
I’ve been busy, busy, busy! First on the list is my new online store, Bluebird Goods. After moving, I got so inspired by this 1927 bungalow with it’s original stained glass windows and kitchen cabinets. I want to capture this environment and blend it with what I grew up around at my grandmother’s home on […]
