I have been called “Gothic-Sporty Spice,” but “way too perky to be emo.” I’m happy and bubbly and full of energy! Those who know me say I’m funny and full of sass–
Which makes me ROCK at what I do!
I have designed from one end of the spectrum to the other–from beautifully aesthetic galleries for professional artists to grungy horror sites to plain and simple; from product information catalogs and fiction magazines to award-winning newspaper ads.
My father is a professional artist and I grew up to marry a man who is a writer, actor and filmmaker. So the gap swings pretty wide when it comes to what I can pull off, graphically speaking.
After getting married and having 2 of my 4 children, my husband and I gave birth to a new “baby.” In August of 1996, 69 Flavors of Paranoia was born. After 12 issues, we had to put our project on the shelf. But in August of 2009, 69FoP was resurrected… A horror fiction, poetry and artworks site, this is one of my true passions. I have passed the editorial portions on to my husband, Rycke, but most of the graphical layout is mine. It’s always a work in progress.
In 1998, I became the Webmistress for Curt Walters, and my fate as a nerd was solidified. Rycke and I lived all across the West during our salad days, toiling at and refining our passions until we moved to beautiful Sedona, Arizona in 2003.
Soon after the birth of my first daughter, I went to work in the Advertising Department of Larson Newspapers. I won a number of awards while working with The Red Rock News…including a 1st Place National award. Later, in 2006 I was hired on by Bhakti-Beka, a small wholesale yoga supply company. After two years of designing flyers, catalogs, packaging and executing marketing plans I found my self at another small corporate office where I’ve gained even more knowledge and am able to further hone my skills.
I am currently taking clients, so if you would like to sit down and discuss your website, your business, or your need to learn Facebook and similar social networking groups, let me know.
