I'm a Wharton educated business strategy consultant turned design blogger. Now rather than staying up late working on a client PowerPoint presentation, I am staying up late to spray paint or Mod Podge after my kids go to bed. I live in the awesome Wicker Park neighborhood of Chicago with my girls Stella (age 3), Hazel (age 1), and husband Ross. I am a habitual shelter magazine clipper, design blog reader, and avid pinner. I love improvising on ideas I've come across to make them my own. Being a mom of two toddlers, I particularly like projects that make a big impact with minimal time and money invested! My blog Design Improvised chronicles my latest adventures in decorating my home, crafting, and entertaining, often with my daughters in tow.
