I believe there
is an undeniable connection between beauty & intelligence.

I love discovering the beauty in well thought out designs whether it be in digital media, packaging design, editorial, art, fashion, architecture or in daily lifestyle. Beauty is important. A strong mind is important. 
 

Background

I am a lot of things. I am a child of the 80's, a 5th-generation Floridian, middle-child of five children, daughter of a navy officer and a nurse, tom boy, artist, dog-lover, cat mom, cyclist, swing dancer, baking enthusiast, free-thinker, feminist, ocean-lover, book lover, and I am sure if you and I had a conversation I would divulge more. Essentially, I paid a University for a degree but... I have learned more!
