Shortcuts for a pulled-together garden

I went from being pretty meh at designing interiors, to being pretty excellent at it – primarily by learning the “rules” of interior design. I decided to try and strategically learn the aesthetic rules for having a more pulled-together-looking garden, too, since prior attempts have always been a hodgepodge that looked chaotic and unconsidered at… Continue reading Shortcuts for a pulled-together garden

My AltConf 2016 talk: Sell Out and Save the World!

Woohoo! I’m so excited! Last year I spoke at AltConf in San Francisco during Apple’s WWDC week.

I’m so honored and… Continue reading Before Grace Hopper
