They say you often fall into what you love by accident. When it comes to graphic and web design, that was definitely the case with me. It all started with the growing popularity of MySpace during my high school years. While others were filling their pages with glittery animated graphics that made me cringe, I looked around and said, "This just won't do." One day I started tinkering with different "behind the scenes" HTML and CSS code elements and the rest is history.

I'm a Pacific Northwest native and have lived in Bellingham since 2005. My software engineer-husband and I live on close to five acres out in the county, where we attempt to maintain a garden and get to play with tractors and riding lawn mowers. Free time finds me playing with our Siberian cat, Yuri, honing my photography skills, baking the world's most delicious soft pretzels and chocolate chip cookies, ballroom and Latin dancing, and practicing being an extrovert at social gatherings with friends.
