I am a visual arts and new media marketing consultant specializing in photography, graphic design, web design, and digital communications.
“Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: “What! You too? I thought I was the only one.” -C.S. Lewis
Offbeat & quirky with a twisted sense of humor. (Tastefully of course!) Thoughtful, loyal, vivacious and bubbly are words that people have used to describe me. I’m sincere and passionate. I can be pretty intense and deep at times. I think that comes with being an artist. The ability to dive into the senses in order to communicate either in written word or visual communication.
My strengths are empathy and compassion. If you were to ask me what my weakness is, I would answer, perfectionism. If I didn’t have a good sense of humor, I’d be stressed out. I like to put people at ease.
A rebel with love of the whimsical and eccentric, I can color outside of the lines.
A HUGE Ted fan, you’ll often see me at the TedxSacramento events.
I’ve been designing websites since 2003. I began by teaching myself, then college classes to study design, typography, web design, adobe creative suite, photography, and more! I continue to stay up to date on current technology and trends.
I am passionate about our Wounded Warriors and those who serve. An active lifetime member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars, Ladies Auxiliary at VFW Post 4647, a proud supporter of our Veterans.
I’m also on the Executive Leadership team for the Social Media Club, Sacramento Chapter and the official photographer for the SMCSac events. I’m involved with the tech community in Sacramento and love to participate in Start-up weekends and hackathons. I get things done!
I am a work in progress. I’m strong and emotional. I love people who are honest and open with their heart and soul.
