A little about me (ok, a lot)

My need to "creatively arrange" began as a child when I would move my bedroom furniture around every few weeks to change the energy (I later found out this was feng shuei).  This need to make things feel right visually led me to California State University, Northridge where I earned my B.A. in Art with an emphasis in Graphic Design, though Journalism ran a close second.

My creative career has spanned over 25 years and I have used my talents at companies ranging from Fortune 500 corporations, ad agencies and beach-front studios complete with midday surfing breaks. My design skills were honed before computers, learning every step in the process from sketching concepts to burning plates and watching my creations print.

When social media exploded, I took a career detour to learn all things digital and to express myself through the written word for the web, sometimes in 140 characters or less.  These skills proved invaluable in being a content producer, and now, directing other creatives to get the best results possible.

When I am not conquering the visual world, odds are you'll find me doing my other favorite thing - cooking.  Once everyone has eaten I enjoy concerts, gardening, trying to remember how to play the piano or redesigning billboards in my head as I drive by.  Fun fact: I took up snowboarding at age 45 and all I can say about that is...snow is hard when you land on it.
