I have been called a whirling dervish (multi-tasking skills), cartoon character (comic relief ability), and 'air dancer’ (those things that flap about at oil change places – you’d get it if you saw my arms).
I have put all of these attributes to use working creatively in the advertising industry for over 20 years, where my work has been recognized internationally.
I earned a BFA in Graphic Design from the University of Georgia, and live in Memphis, TN, where great music is always playing.
