Who I Am (abridged version)

My philosophy


A bit of pertinent history

I’ve worked as a graphic designer and web developer since 1999 (full-time since 2000) and owned my own full-time business since 2006.

I’m a graduate of the prestigious (and grueling) graphic design program at Portfolio Center in Atlanta and hold a BA in Art History from Davidson College (NC).


Avocations that make me better at my job

Running & yoga

The physical benefits of exercise. Knowing when to push and when to ease up. Staying calm and persevering when things get tough. Starting, stopping, and re-starting over and over. (Including stopping exercising altogether for a while and then restarting it :-)

Music

The ability to play well with others. Knowing my place in an ensemble, and that the spaces between the notes are just as important as the notes themselves. (Currently I’m enjoying the djembe and acoustic guitar.)

Parenting

Consciously practicing dual-perspective and clear, consistent communication on a daily basis. Going with the flow. Not sweating the small stuff. (I have genetically identical twin daughters.)

Decluttering & organizing

Reducing the unnecessary. Putting things in logical places. (I’m a bit obsessed with this.)
