About Me

Riotflower's Realm blog welcome image.

I am a Pennsylvanian living with my Scottish wife and our son in central Scotland. I initially came over in 2005 to undertake a Ph.D. and have stuck around! In my free time, I try to push the limits on creative (re)use of resources- in crafting, food, household items and clothing. Basically, I like learning how to make things and enjoy creative challenges.

I blog about crafting clothing, things for the home and gifts, growing indoor plants and food in the garden, and just life in generalย (including living as an immigrant)!


  1. Hi,
    My name is Natalie Sullivan and I’m casting an international travel show about expats moving abroad. We’d love to film in Scotland and wanted to know if you could help us find expats who have moved there within the last 15 months or have been there for 3-4 years, but recently moved into a new home. The show documents their move to a new country and will place the country in fabulous light. The expats on the show would also receive monetary compensation if they are filmed. They must also speak English fluently and can be buyers or renters for their homes. If you’d like more information, please give me a call at 212-231-7717 or skype me at natalieesullivan. You can also email me at nataliesullivan@leopardusa.com. Looking forward to hearing from you.
