madbird is Alecia and Rob Miller. We met in art school in the mid 90's, and graduated with BFAs in 1999.
After graduating, Alecia became a public school art teacher, but soon left teaching to be home with our first son. In 2009, a couple years after our fourth son was born, Alecia opened shop as madbird on Etsy. She is the product designer and creator for everything offered in the shop.
During his off hours as a consultant, Rob takes care of all madbird photography, media design and product shipping.
Alecia likes scary movies, gardening, keeping the birds in our yard well fed, cooking, taking our kids to the beach, knitting, and of course - sewing!
Rob likes reading, good music, and Alecia.
We happily live near Boston, Massachusetts with our four big boys & one little girl (we welcomed our first daughter in 2012!)
