I was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area and absolutely love it here. I went to New York for college, and after experiencing winter, came back as soon as I graduated with my degree in religious studies. “Religion” is really an umbrella term that covers a vast array of beliefs, practices, and cultures, and I believe that approaching such a complicated and contentious subject with an open willingness to learn is a must in today’s world. The exposure to the diverse people, cultures, art, food, and ideas that I experience on a daily basis in the Bay Area allows me to learn new things daily, as well as realize how little I really do know in the grand scheme of things.
Here at Nina Designs I am surrounded by intelligent, creative, and inspiring women who encourage me to pursue my ideas, be it making jewelry or roller skating. When I’m not writing philosophical blurbs about myself, I enjoy gardening, reading, crafternoons, and the Oxford comma.
