I climbed oak trees, watched fireflies and played in the cornfields of Illinois in my childhood. Later, my family moved to scenic Steamboat Springs, Colorado where I spent my formative teen years on skis. My college career consisted of studying creative writing at Colorado State University and working at an old, dilapidated, second-run movie theater, both of which I have many, fond memories.
Upon graduation, I promptly embarked on a two-year graphic design internship and found my true calling. I've been in the design industry ever since.
I've called San Francisco home for over 20 years and am happily married. I live in the Mission District. Warm, bright light, traveling, and the color orange make me happy. I collect gnomes and chickens, love a good thrift store, and am quite fond of Christmas. I belong to a couple of book clubs.
