Hi, I'm


“I have no special talent. I am only passionately curious.” – Albert Einstein


This pretty much sums me up! Just a “normal” mom of 4 who was curious about power tools and design and decided to jump right in and figure things out first-hand! I’m convinced there isn’t a better way to learn than to just get your hands dirty and try for yourself.


I picked up my first tool in 2010 when we purchased our first home (in Hawaii!). Our family has lived all over the world, and I’ve taken that love of power tools and used it to transform furniture and homes from Hawaii to North Carolina to Italy and now to the Northeastern US. I started teaching small groups of women how to use simple power tools like a drill and brad nailer, and I found it so empowering! I decided to bring it to a larger audience through social media in 2017, and the rest is history. 


I’m now a full-time content creator and am excited to bring you tips and tricks for building and creating your own homes! 


For my followers, please feel free to reach out and ask questions! Instagram and Facebook DMs are the fastest way to get a hold of me.
