I'm an artist with a background in apparel design. I grew up in India, but have lived in the west coast, Brooklyn and now New Jersey. My daughter was born in Brooklyn and we did a lot of Forest Schooling. I was totally sold on the transformative experience it is for both parents and children to learn (or just be) outside. I share the Tinkergarten founders concern about the excessive time kids spend indoors and I want to do my part to counter that. I love being around kids, love being outdoors and encouraging creativity. I think Tinkergarten brings all these elements together and its been such joy to teach season after season.
