I’m a product of the 80’s and survived the era of Rainbow Brite, British Knights, New Kids on the Block, and the beginning of MTV. I’m 34 years old, born and raised in Sacramento. I have always had a fascination with buttons, so as the digital age progressed I found myself using my traditional artistic skills on a computer screen. My graphic/web design clients include Olympic athletes and companies such as Red Bull, Brown-Foreman, and Bacardi. I am passionate about art, design, singing, technology, and the non-stop need to create.
I received my Bachelor of Science Degree in Web Development in 2012. It was a milestone in my life that I always sought to complete and so happy that I did! I spent most of my 20’s traveling the US and the world following the Olympic sport of Short Track Speed Skating. From Chicago, to New York, to Italy, to England, I used my design skills to meet and work with some of the greatest US athletes in the world, including 8x Olympic Medalist Apolo Anton Ohno.
I married my creative and talented husband, Brian, in November 2011 and we are looking forward to starting a family soon! I’m an introvert with extroverted tendencies and I want to continue to push myself to the achieve and take on the next adventure.
