I was born and raised in a small town in central Maine, where most of my family still resides. My mother and best friend is a fabulous quilter (Oak Grove Quilter), and my father is a jack-of-all-trades who even built the beautiful house I grew up in. I've been a bit of a dabbler in life, but for as long as I can remember, I've been a Musician, Mathematician, and most importantly, a Maker.
I'm now living and crafting in New York City, where I also organize Meetups in Manhattan and Queens, and teach technique workshops at local shops. My main focus for the foreseeable future, though, is Asylum Fibers.
I've had the honor of learning from some of the industry's best, including Lorilee Beltman, Steven Berg, Edie Eckman, Faina Goberstein, Franklin Habit, Amy Herzog, Felicia Lo, Nancy Marchant, Kristy McGowan, Alasdair Post-Quinn, Leslye Solomon, Debbie Stoller, Stephen West, and Josh Bennett.
I follow my feelings, not the rules.
