Who I Am  

A Little About Me

I was born in Cali but grew up in Michigan. I strive to be creative and see the world a little differently than the analytical trend I find myself in. I love thinking outside the box, problem solving, and creating new and inventive ways to make life a little bit more interesting. I enjoy my career in marketing, graphic design and sales. My work life is balanced with my personal life and I owe a lot of my successes to the family and friend support I surround myself with.
