I work as a brand strategist and account manager in Chicago. The majority of my "free time" is spent knitting, designing, reading, shopping and ingesting as many americanos as humanly possible.

Most weekends you'll find me knitting, watching my endless supply of movies, or ambling around Chicago with the love of my life, Joshua.
