ARTIST

I've been a creative, visual person my whole life. I took many extra-curricular art classes as a child, chose to focus on creativity-based electives in high school, and eventually formally studied fine arts in college. Since graduating, I've worked as a design and marketing professional. While designing is my "day job", I enjoy spending time away from the computer working with my hands creating paintings, drawings, and even the occasional vignette or window display in my home.

NOT THAT YOU ASKED, BUT...

I'm a champion list maker.
I love to clean and organize closets, cabinets & drawers.
Hiking, reading, boating, fishing, craft beers, Mexican food, hummingbird sightings, and sitting in the sun (or any combo of these) are my favorite.
I can cook.
