1. Tell us about your work and interests.

I’m an educator, artist and designer, who currently calls Chicago, IL home. I design textiles and jewelry for fair trade companies. I also love cycling, picnics, and Yiddishkayt.

I just started designing textiles for Mata Traders’ new fall collection. I am also working on building a piñata for a spectacular summer party.

3. What will you be doing ABKK this year?

I’ll be leading the children’s program at A Biselle KlezKamp this year, and cannot wait to dive into fun singing, arts & crafts projects and dancing with the kids!

4. What do you do when you’re not teaching at KlezKamp?

I teach at an afterschool program, and design for various fair trade fashion and accessory companies based in Chicago. I am also anticipating starting a masters degree program in Art, Entertainment and Media Management at Columbia College Chicago this fall.
