OTHER WORK

i also have a ton of hobbies.

If it's hands-on and/or art-y, I have probably tried it or thought about trying it. 

I am an amateur photographer and have created interior designs for friends, remodeled my own homes, painted more walls than I can count, learned out to use a miter saw and sew, and much more. I have a bit of a green thumb and eclectic taste in home interiors. I am also a reader who's interested in most things esoteric. (If you happen to be into Human Design, let me know!) I even had a brief run as a co-host for a hobby podcast called There Are No Tangents before life got too busy to keep it up. Even though black is my favorite color, I love colorful art...hence the name of my collage hobby/side hustle Colorful Humans.

I currently live in Asheville, North Carolina, with my family and two black pets.
