curious creator from Bainbridge Island, WA
From as far back as I can remember, I could look at something and draw it exactly as it appeared. It is a gift I inherited from my mother, who was an artist. Creating art and designing has always been how I communicate and how I center myself. It is my meditation.
Until a few years ago, I was a successful fine artist that specialized in photorealistic acrylic paintings. But I felt the pull towards the digital world. So I set about to re-educate myself, and was able to complete Certificate programs in both UX and Web Design, and start taking on client projects all in the span of two years. Adding these new skills to my background in college of Cognitive Science, Neuroscience and art allows me to pursue all my interests, both analytical and creative, at the same time.
In my free time I still enjoy painting, and getting outside as much as possible. Hiking, backpacking/camping and family time are essential to a happy and well-rounded me. Together, our family likes to pursue experiences and adventures that change and shape us, and inform us about the world outside ourselves. The more we get out of our own heads, listen, and experience, the more rich our lives become.
By Solving our own most difficult problems, we're potentially creating immense value for everyone else.
