Meet Emily

I grew up in a tiny piece of upstate New York. I migrated further upstate to do my bachelors at Clarkson University. My degree is in Digital Arts & Sciences –  a blend of graphic design and programming.

I worked for several years in Boston in the marketing and operations fields. I managed everything from social media feeds and student trips to negotiating contracts and rowdy coworkers. After a period of contemplation, I’ve come back to my roots and pursued my love of working with my hands.

With another degree under my belt – this time in manufacturing technology – and an operator/programmer job in a production facility, I’ve started working on creative side jobs once more. 

From creating Subaru EZ30R header flanges from a “drawing” that was nothing but dykem blue on a piece of cardboard, to giveaways for events like challenge coins (or pogs, as one person called them), I’m really enjoying the creative projects that have come my way.

Two truths and a lie:

Rave Reviews

“Funny” — Chelsea, former coworker

“Hardworking and thoughtful” — Ashley, former supervisor

“Oh my GOD what are you doing?” — my elementary school teachers  

Meet My Helpers

Pratt, an orange ginger cat, sleeps on the couch


A Giant Orange Boy with a great deal of fur and virtually no brain cells, he enjoys pulling himself to a standing position on the coffee table – much like a toddler – and pulling down everything he can reach. Other hobbies include midnight arias, Dale Earnhardt impressions, and fine dining.

Whitney, a calico tabby cat on a perch


A shy warrior, she has the Squeak Heard Round the World. Her opinions matter and she’s not bashful about letting you know them. Whitney can often be found perusing the bookshelves, experimenting with simple machinery and trying the latest culinary trends in greenery.

"Emily has helped me with two specific requests: she formatted, edited, condensed and clarified my resume and she wrote a primer on illustration which I subsequently used in to help guide my students in technical drawing. She completed both tasks quickly and accurately, with good humor and little oversight."
