Ep. 21 Jess Petyo

This week I chill with Octopus Tree House co-founder, Jess Petyo. She started her own print making company with her husband Paul a few years ago. Jess is seriously my little lady-geek soulmate. We talk about so many amazing things like 3D printing, vinyl toys, comic cons, and being lazy about showering every day (when you work from home these things happen!). You can check out all of Jess's awesomeness on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
