I am a designer in the graphic design field. My passion has always
been the arts, architecture, antiques and history. I was surrounded
by art and artists throughout my childhood. I am also a bookstore
junkie and read the Sunday New York Times and New Yorker. Love,
Independent and foreign films. Swing dancing. I also enjoy finding
small out-of-the-way restaurants with great food and mismatched
silverware. I'm fascinated by other cultures and traditions.
What I’m doing with my life
I own a small graphic design business. I work for children's
museums, non profit organizations, and small businesses. I design
logos, brochures, websites, you name it. I am also an illustrator.
I was a professor for ten years, but returned to creative/business
I’m really good at
Eating dark chocolate. Dancing. Spotting a great antique in a pile
The first things people usually notice about me
How petite I am (and how cute!)
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food

The six things I could never do without
art, music, dance
coffee and dark chocolate
I spend a lot of time thinking about
What has happened to this country in the last ten years and how
certain factions of our society have become so marginalized they
now seem invisible to most.
On a typical Friday night I am
seeing a new foreign or independent film, having dinner with
friends, working on a new project, taking a walk after at dusk,
running, rummaging through a bookstore.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I love dark chocolate.
You should message me if

Appreciate the arts
Have a great sense of humor
Like small women
