a bit about me

portrait of me

I've worn many shoes in publishing. I've been a reporter, editor, writer, designer, art director, photographer, prop stylist, fact-checker, and blogger. No kidding. But regardless of the role I play, I'm most passionate about design.

In 2009, after six years as a magazine designer, I decided to pursue my newfound hobby-cum-passion: website design. I enrolled in a web design certificate program, and didn't look back. Turns out, I enjoy writing code as much as I do any part of the design process.

Now I'm designing web and print assets for AAA and VIA magazine in addition to my other hobby (crafting and writing for my blog Crafty Nest) and enjoying every minute of it.
