This is the story of a country girl who found her soul in the city and never looked back.
I'm a jill of all trades - I do whatever it takes to bring people, products and places together.
My design journey started with an incredible 5 years in the interior design program at DAAP. I've been carving a new path for myself ever since, with stops along the way in design, non profits, and agency life. I'm currently working in account management - but my past experiences help bring a lot of perspective to everything I do.
I connect people and their ideas to each other. Writing, tweeting, designing, concepting... from meeting with clients to getting projects out the door, I love getting my hands all over every step of the design process.
I'm guided by my personal sense of "meraki" - a Greek word meaning "the love of creating - putting one's self into one's work." I can't wait to see where it leads me.
I started writing in April of 2009 to reach a wider audience for a furniture product I designed and am producing for small scale retail distribution. I've grown a little and so has my writing and experiences. I was the Operations Manager for UrbanCincy from 2009 to the beginning of 2012, and have had several articles published in Soapbox Cincinnati and the Cincinnati Business Courier.
I'm in the midst of living and loving my life. I hope you'll stick around for the ride.
