Hi there! I'm an artist of many talents who loves to learn and is always trying new things.

I have a natural curiosity that I've channeled into a career as a jill-of-all trades. I do work ranging from illustration, animation, learning design, front-end web design, and user experience design. Above all else I think about the end user, what do they need and how can I help them.

I live in San Diego with my spouse and spoiled Australian terrier. I love hiking, the craft beer scene, and crocheting.
