Professionally, I create things for the web.

In my free time, I read, paint, research genealogy and explore nature.

I used to replace the inside of watches with tiny prints of my watercolor paintings.  If you see me wearing a watch, that doesn’t always mean I know the time. I occasionally look through photos of abandoned places or read about history. I love video games and when it comes to Halo, I’m pretty good for a girl. I like Bubble Tea and karaoke, My favorite actor is Edward Norton. Some of my professional idols are Jakob NielsenLuke Wroblewski and Ethan Marcotte. I’m spontaneous, serious, and silly.
