I have been here in the San Francisco Bay Area for over 15 years. I graduated with a degree in Communication Design, specifically in illustration. After college, wanderlust took me all over this great big beautiful country of mine. In 1996 I finally landed in San Francisco and decided that this was home.
Since then, I have rolled through the many aspects of digital creativity, starting with supporting Macs and longing to be in the design department with those whose computers I was fixing, to then taking a class in Photoshop and finally finding myself on the design side of an agency. From there I learned as I went, and have since qualified myself as a print production artist, digital photo retoucher, and web designer. I enjoy all of these things, but mostly, I enjoy designing and building Flash and CSS websites and making clients happy.
In my off time, I am a runner and a photographer. I am also a part time performer, having been a fire spinner, a stilt walker, and most recently, a back-up singer in a funk band. I love to travel, and I have been abroad four times. I am looking forward to doing more of that. In the meantime, I get in my car and go as often and far as possible. My latest discovery? Some of the most wonderful places I have ever been to are right in my own backyard.
