About Me

Hi, my name is Britt and I'm a rocktackular featured writer at Curbly. I like projects of all kinds, especially inexpensive ones that require one deadly power tool or less. I hold a B.A. in English & Creative Writing from UCLA, and love to meet like-minded people wherever they may be. You can also catch me on Twitter or the CalFinder Remodeling Blog, where I share cool spaces, home improvement tips and generally jaw-dropping design. Say whaaaat up!
