I am a math and grammar nerd who loves to create with fiber. I learned how to knit and crochet in my early teens, was making my own clothes by the time I was fifteen, and, while in college, began sewing custom garments for others. On any given day you might find me working out the puzzle of making a garment that fits well, figuring out a new way to purl, or converting a knitting pattern into something different.
I currently teach knitting classes and different knitting techniques in the Dallas area. Over the years, I have taught people of all ages how to knit, and I love watching my students overcome the struggle of learning something new, give themselves to the practice, and grow into lifelong knitters.
Editing for knitters is my dream job. Technical editing joins all of my interests and skills together: my lifelong experience with garment design and construction, my obsession with hand knitting, my love of good writing, and my appetite for tasty problem-solving math.
Every day I approach my work with enthusiasm. It makes my day to help creators, designers, and makers polish their copy in order to produce a professional and error-free product.
Education and Training:
- Bachelor of Arts, Ohio State University, French and English
- UCSD Extension Certificate in Copyediting
