I've been working in the motion graphic design industry for 12 years for television and production agencies. Prior to my professional design career, I illustrated chalk art and signage for the Trader Joe's Company and worked for a silkscreen shop prepping designs for print, running presses, and commercial dryers. I spend my free time as a personal canine chef and masseur for my pack of large and pint-size Dobermans. They are living their best life. I'm a mountain girl born and raised in the Sierra Nevada foothills of Yosemite National Park, so I recharge in nature every chance I get. I grew up cleaning creosote out of engine blocks and turning lathes as a kid because back in the boondocks we call that fun....not child labor. Official gem and mineral fanatic, chocolate connoisseur, friend to squirrels, and wildlife rescue volunteer.
