Hello! I’m excited to get to know you. Before we begin, here are a few things to know about me.
Design in its many forms is a driving force in my life, and has been since childhood. Simply put, I cannot exist without it. My view of the world is often through a specific lens of color, texture, shape and scale. I am grounded by earth’s organic beauty and charged by well-built environments. It’s a bit strange to admit or explain.
At the same time, I am also a strategic organizer. Never a fan of chaos or clutter, I believe things should have a purpose and a place (this goes for objects, ideas, and relationships).
My background: I first attended the University of Minnesota for Interior Design – at age 19 I had some idea of what I wanted to do. But I left the program to move to California because I knew in my gut that if I didn’t leave then, I probably never would.
I went back to school and graduated from FIDM in Los Angeles, with a degree in Visual Communications. This trade opened up my design portfolio to include styling and retail merchandising as well as graphic design and branding. Coming full-circle, I later went to school again for Interior Design, earning a Bachelors of Science degree from The Art Institute.
My career path has included set design and art direction for film and television, retail merchandising, purchasing, interior design for residential and boutique commercial sites, event design, small business branding, social media and email marketing, graphic and website design. Every one of these jobs has required a balance of strategic planning along with creative thinking and social psychology.
I have been self-employed for nearly 10 years, which has allowed me to move continuously between creative and strategic pursuits, balancing these two sides of myself and finding the sweet spot of work satisfaction.
