I started my art training early in life when my mother taught me to draw before I could barely hold a pencil. Since then I’ve continued to love all things related to art and design.
My formal education has included photography and design studies at the University of Massachusetts where I earned multiple Bachelor of Fine Arts degrees in Photography, Electronic Imaging, and Illustration. I also achieved magna cum laude in Photography and Electronic Imaging (which made my mother very proud).
I consider myself a life-long learner and I'm currently working on a master's degree in Human and Computer Interaction at Iowa State University's School of Engineering.
In addition I’ve been honored to win various photography awards, and have my work grace the pages of numerous publications.
In my spare time (what's that?), I enjoy gardening, yoga, and spending time sitting on my patio drinking craft beer with friends and family.
