Molly grew up in the great Pacific Northwest and gets annoyed when people in New England claim that they have mountains. She studies graphic design, urban planning, education, community-based art, video, animation, photography, and other neat things. Her primary passion is FONTS! She is obsessed with all things typography and is a member of the Society of Typographic Aficionados. She has a strong affection for ampersands.
She has also played and performed with the circus for many years, as a staff-spinner, acrobat, and more recently as a juggler. Other things Molly likes to do include organize flash mobs, build community, take pretty pictures of you, go on long bike rides, and creatively disrupt everyday life.
The Downside-Up Circus – In the summer of 2009 Molly co-founded a nonprofit circus company with two others (Tara and Victoria). Their first major project is a tour of the northwest during the summer of 2010, entitled INTERROBANG, during which they will travel exclusively by bicycle.
Mighty Cycle Media -Molly’s little media company that does design and publicity for nonprofits, small local businesses, and social causes. Also, her other blog.
The Heretics – Molly spent two years doing motion graphic design, art direction, and animation for this feature length documentary film about a feminist art collective in the 1970s.
The Society for the Creative REalization of a Weirder You (SCReWY) – Molly and Tara organize flash mobs and make cheeky instructional videos.
