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 almost 20 years and am happily married. I live in the Mission District. Belonging to a science fiction and fantasy book club, I wear the badge of Nerd with pride! I'm on the board of directors at Variety - the Children's Charity of Northern California as the president.
I'm currently searching for and exploring for the next stage of my design career.
Bright light, traveling, and the color orange make me happy.
