I was born in Long Island, New York. From a young age I had an interest in art. Once moving to Cave Creek, Arizona, that interest grew into a passion. My high school art teacher sent out my drawings and paintings and helped me to earn scholarships to Northern Arizona University. I graduated from NAU with my Bachelor of Fine Arts degree then began working in the creative field in Colorado where I could enjoy the mountains outside of work. My experience over the years has ranged from branding to print to web.
