I can be best defined by the choices I made. Moving to NYC - from SF - 30 years ago, leaving NYC 10 years ago, living on Shelter Island next to the sea the whole time and now relocating to center city Philadelphia. Committing myself to creativity, design, answering my calling and not hewing to convention.
I love creating - professionally (print, motion, interactive, live action), in the kitchen, on a walk and interpersonally and I love indulging my curiosity in things trivial and profound.
It has been a life of amazing adventures.
I appreciate each one and look forward to more. My life is informed by these experiences and while most have been good, some have not, yet they have created a beautiful tapestry, provided great lessons and I would not trade a single one of them.
The move to Philadelphia is just exactly the right thing. No question. I could not, in planning this transplant, envision how radical it would be. There is a slow integration into my new (old) environment and while I do not long for my (former) island life, the challenges inherent in this move are such a privilege to have/experience. While many are winding down, I am winding up and I am honored/fortunate to be of the spirit (see below) to initiate and more importantly, embrace this change.
