My self-summary
Art Director - I get to solve creative problems all day. I feel so lucky!

Surfer - I love surfing at dawn when the world is asleep still. There is a peace during this time that is like nothing else.

INFJ - More like an ambivert but lean more toward introversion. N-Knowing. F-feeling, J-judging.

Yoga and Pilates practitioner - I am obsessed over alignment. It's weird I know.

Long time Lindy Hopper/Swing Dancer. I used to run a long running weekly swing dance in San Francisco. It's still going under new management. That makes me so proud.

I been loving dancing to House music. The freedom, spirit and relentless beat.

Born in LA. Came up to San Francisco for art school and never looked back.
I lived in San Francisco for over 9 years and now residing in Oakland for the past 7+ and loving it. I love the bay area so much. A world class city, amazing restaurants, the Pacific Ocean, the bridges, the bay, redwoods, music and culture. After more than 16 years here. I still gush about it.
What I’m doing with my life
I am a designer/art director. I help to create the visual voice of a musical brand. I love my job! I was teaching design a few years ago and I hope to get back to it soon. I miss sharing and creating with students.

Connecting with nature whether hiking in my backyard in the Oakland Hills or chasing waves up and down the coast.

Doing yoga, pilates and meditating. These things are crucial and fundamental to me now post back surgery. I feel really blessed to regain my health. I surely won't take it for granted.

Keeping up with friends
Keyboard shortcuts
Creating projects
Loving on my cat
Eating amazing food
Buying sneakers
