I live with my husband in the Logan Square neighborhood of Chicago. I sing with a variety of Eastern European choirs, as well as the Episcopal choir in Evanston, where I grew up. I developed a taste for knitting design in 2011 when I started knitting my mom a newly designed shawl every Mothers' Day!
