I am so fortunate I get to do what I love for a living and feel oh so grateful to be here in beautiful Oakland. Life is fun.
My favorite things involve spending time with others, biking SF and East Bay, reading, learning, and whatever trouble I can manage finding. I work within the subtle arts of graphic design and illustration for a bay area company. I love my job. I am also a writer of sorts and play music.
I practice meditation and try to live curiously keeping a beginners mind. I like to ask questions, practice listening and do my best to make the most of the time we have right now. I currently have no idea if there is anything after all of this.
Art and community are very important to me.
