Born and raised in a small suburb outside of Philadelphia, my Mom recalls me skipping most places, taking the road less traveled, and always having a basketball under my arm. My Dad recalls plotting pranks and testing my fears along with my physical & mental strength.   

For over thirty years, creating and connecting the dots of my life has been an amazing adventure. I'm open, patient, and ready for what life has in store. I'm convinced everything happens for a reason. I believe we are all energy, put here to laugh, love, learn, grow and give with our whole hearts to help those around us.

Working as a graphic designer in San Diego, California, my current project is designing and building my own Tiny House with my Dad.  My hope is for other family, friends and supporters to contribute along the way.  No name for her yet, but she'll be a reflection and expression of everything I am.
