I was born in Sacramento, CA, grew up in the pacific northwest near Portland, OR, lived in the small town of Benson AZ, and finally ended up in Seattle, WA before journeying to Upstate New York.
After graduating from a world-renowned cosmetology school in Seattle, WA, I decided to pursue my dream of working in a book store. So, packing up all my belongings, I moved to Ogdensburg, NY to take a position as a store clerk at Lauriat’s Bookstore at the St. Lawrence Centre Mall in Massena NY.
After leaving Lauriat’s Bookstore, I began a career in Graphic Design. I have distinguished myself as one of the premier graphic designers, not only in New York state, but nationwide by winning more than 90 awards for graphic excellence.
