A Graphic Designer with years of experience in both agency and in-house life. I am currently part of the production department of a translation and interpretation company. I have overseen a production department of up to 30 designers, developers, and A/V specialists.
From time to time I also like to paint, play music, and watch really awful B-movies.

A little more:
Born on an island and raised in the South by a hippie and a biker [redacted]. I grew up [redacted] and went to art school (twice). Even living and studying in Italy for a semester. I started my carrier as an in-house designer and later moved to agency life working on everything from multi-national brands to political campaigns. Then moved half-way across the country to the PNW, which is where I have called home for over a decade.

More! More! More!:
I can’t swim, not even with arm floaties and an inflatable zebra inner tube. My favorite smell is fresh laundry, closely followed by fresh coffee. I have never seen “The Godfather” trilogy, but know every line from “Rocky Horror Picture Show.” As a musician, I have had the chance to perform under the Eiffel Tower (yes, that one). I wear glasses, not look smart, but because my eyes are broken. And lastly, I had a lot of houseplants before lockdown. Now I have a small indoor jungle. Would you like one?
