What are your hobbies?
Eating burgers is a hobby, right? I'm President of the Omaha Burger Club, so I guess that's my hobby. / All things hair related, doll collecting, treasure hunting.
What are your favorite crafts and what's your craft space like?
Any kind of styling is what I consider to be my craft. / Hairdressing first and foremost. However, I decorated cakes for a living for several years before I was fully established in the field.
What do you craft along to?
I often work while watching Law & Order SVU because there are a million episodes. / At home when I work on mannequins I listen to a lot of psych/acid folk of the 60s-70s.
What was the first project you ever made?
Oh goodness, that's difficult to recall. Probably something painted, which was my biggest childhood passion. / Some sort of strange red clay. I got the recipe out of the back of a children's book.
What are your favorite items to make?
Hair, makeup and wardrobe styling. / I took a braiding class this Spring and since, I've been really getting into the finer points of braiding in my dresswork. My favorite looks are those inspired the 1960's, so pairing that sentiment with something as organic looking as a braid has been quite interesting. I am really interested in all aspects of my medium, though. From cutting the perfect military-approved high and tight to creating the most beautiful, seamlessly blended rooty Victoria's Secret model highlights.

Is there anything else you'd like to add?
I recently co-founded a womenswear e-commerce site launching later this summer with CO+K Crafty Superstar #62, Megan Hunt of Princess Lasertron.

just takes a bit of repetition, care, and most of all, TIME. Too often clients sit in my chair and say they can't do their hair in a very defeated tone. They CAN!
