i'm a designer and small business owner in austin, texas. my company, MakeATX, is a small membership-based design and fabrication workshop where we offer access to our space and equipment, teach classes, host events, offer custom laser cutting services and design a variety of products under the name Bright Beam Goods. i studied art, art history and japanese at dartmouth college in hanover, new hampshire, and after working for a few years as an architectural historian, i attended harvard university graduate school of design for my masters in architecture.

i am a very conscientious and responsible gal with a wonderful boyfriend. charlie is a single dad with a sweet full-time 11-year-old son. we love to travel, see live music, go treasure-hunting at thrift stores, design and draw. we laugh a lot, i clean and organize often, charlie is a sucker for roots music, and conlin reads, plays the flute, and loves legos and super hero movies.

i grew up in southern california on an avocado grove, and charlie was raised in a candle factory in arizona; we're the perfect pair! we met and live in austin, texas, a city we both love deeply.

when we travel we spend a lot of time out and exploring, really only seeking a reliable roof over our heads and a place to shower between outings. when we're back at our place of residence we never entertain; we mostly rest up for the next great outing.
