Artist, geek, rocker chick, and believer in fairy tales.
I am a high-producing and vibrant creator, with an eye for design and a curious mind. My layouts are as bright and engaging as the strategy behind them. I have 12+ years designing and creating professionally and hold my work to the highest caliber. Here is a little bit about who I am, and what makes me tick (both professionally and personally).
I have been an artist and maker my whole life. I grew up with a family that nurtured my creative side. My favorite memories as a child were spent around my grandmother's dining room table making anything from parade float banners and pop-up cards to paper-mâché piñatas and marionettes. She could make something out of nothing and kept 'box of possibilities' on hand. This box had scraps of fabric, paper, glue, paint and anything that could be used again. To this day I still keep my 'box of possibilities' and always find creative uses for items.
My love for learning is only matched by my desire to try new things. I love checking out historic buildings, museums, art festivals, and all kinds of experiential events. In my spare time I work on side projects to work out new ideas. I am always busy and always learning through experiences. I am also a pop culture fan girl and love fan conventions and fan created content. I am an absolute Disney geek and can tell you anything you want to know about the company. I have many passions that I draw inspiration from and can "boldly go where no one has gone before."
When I am front row at a concert I am at home. I love classic and hard rock and have seen Aerosmith 10 times in concert. Live music is in my blood and I regularly attend local shows as well as travel across the country for first-class performances featuring my favorite artists. I have met dozens of performers including Steven Tyler and Joe Perry of Aerosmith and will often create posters in celebration of my favorite shows. My concert scrapbooks full of setlists, guitar picks, pictures, and other momentos are some of my favorite personal possessions.
BELIEVER IN FAIRY TALES
I truly believe there isn't anything you can't do once you put your mind to it. I have never been afraid to ask questions or give 100% when others give up. I am also a volunteer wish granter for Make-A-Wish and help make miracles happen everyday.
