Next #TDKtuesdays
San Diego meet-up:

Announcing soon!
August 6, 2024

Meet Sarah, your San Diego host!

Hey! I'm Sarah (she/her), a foggy Bay Area native, constantly seeking shade in sunny San Diego. I have worked in public education, community building, sustainable supply-chains, marketing and business development. And finally I am here pursuing my dream of having a creative career in graphic + product design. When I am not obsessively designing I am hobbying. My extracurriculars include orienteering, photography, natural dyeing, mycology, hiking, exploring and finding new places to nap.
