Taylor A.Comment

Hi all! We are pleased to announce the addition of members to the tamer animals family! Please take a moment to get to know us a bit better. We're super-excited to launch the new blog this week and glad to have you here (new readers and seasoned veterans!)

Taylor A.
I’m a soon-to-be architect living in the Southeast with my boyfriend, Jonah, and our furkids, Lucien and Axl. In my free time I enjoy writing narratives, crafting, playing music, painting, and doing a wide variety of projects. I especially love vintage everything (especially midcentury modern!), a good cup of chai, and reading a good book on a rainy day. I used to run a vintage store, am a fashion school dropout, and love taking photographs and exploring the world. I am inspired by the photography of Horst Diekgerdes, Alex Sainsbury, and Sharif Hamza lately and am currently working with others on a project called Humans of Appalachia.  I was the editor-in-chief for paper+wire magazine and am very excited to be here doing this now. 

Denver B.
Bartender and barista extraordinaire by day. Hails from Baltimore, MD. Loves 1920’s barber shop fashion. Old world pioneer. Whiskey straight. Plays the Wurlitzer. Northern Gentleman. Living for music and good ole times. Man of few works but many words. 

Allison (Ally) R.
I’m a 26-year-old freelance artist and writer with a BFA in Design. As a North Portland-via-Los Angeles transplant, I’m currently exploring my new city and working a variety of odd jobs in the process. I really love lots of patterns and colors and hope to bring creative designs and inspiration to the table. I live with my boyfriend, Jeremy, and our dogs, Lillian and Spitz.

Maddie C. 
I am a thirty-something Atlanta native who lives in a lovingly restored 1940’s cottage with my husband Clark, eight-year old daughter Camille, and our three-year old son Casper. My chief interests are interior decorating, gardening, and cooking. I also like to craft and love to find clever ways to use things rather than tossing them in landfills. I am all about all the great places we have to eat in my city and the beautiful parks! An interesting fact about me is that I am Chinese and Irish. I'm a super-nerdy girl and an avid science fiction fan (yes, I am a Trekkie!!) 

We hope this gave you a good albeit brief introduction to our team. We're very excited for this opportunity and look forward to getting to know all of you and letting you get to know us, too! Thanks for the support, guys!

Also, don't forget to enter the drawing for the giveaway! Just a couple more days to go!!
