OK, that’s enough third-person. I find balance through creative projects, whether they be cooking and a food blog, or art projects (although my projects these days tend to be digital in nature). I live in the suburbs of New York with the mayhem of a family with excessively high-energy children. You can reach me at giff(dot)constable @gmail.
