Favorite things about Making in Baltimore:

The community of makers here. It’s so many talented makers here that are willing to connect and support each other via groups like Baltimore Etsy Sellers.

Biggest challenge you’ve overcome Making in Baltimore: 

Finding affordable studio space. I’m still working on that.

What fun facts we should know about Fly Nerd Apparel: 

Hmm…I started screen printing because I bought a YUDU machine on clearance at Joanns or Michaels. Then, I learned to rig it via Youtube and working among the talented folks at Plaza Art in Towson. And my very first vending event was at my nephew’s elementary school. I was one of 3 vendors. It was JUST 3 of us. Humble beginnings.
