Miscellany

  • I designed and write KnuckleSalad.com, a crafts-and-cooking blog.
  • Until fairly recently, I recycled old game pieces and comic books into jewelry. My jewelry line, Gangbusters, was sold in a few boutiques, through Etsy and at regional festivals.
  • During college, I worked at an adult mental health center, where I taught group activities like arts and crafts, music, and dance.
  • I’m a founding member of local art collective Magic Is Science, which puts on sci-fi and geek-themed art exhibits.
  • In January of 2009, I founded a small group here in Atlanta to knit small gifts for patients at Children’s.
