My name is Dylan and I’m a strange combination of creative endeavors. From mixing cereals and making sand art as a kid, to graphic design, drawing & painting, videography & editing, sewing, and general craft enthusiasm as an adult, creating and making things beautiful has not only been my constant, but an obsession. Paired with an everlasting love of learning and trying things with my own hands, I’ve become a creative force with a wide range of skills and interests.
