I am an illustrator, freelance graphic designer, believer, random observer, creator, fan, often a cynic, devil’s advocate (but only for arguments, never for life). I am a bit like sandpaper: I can make smooth things rough and rough things smooth. I love good cardboard. I love holding babies. I love riding bicycles. I tear-up at a well-written obstacle-overcoming sports story. I am not afraid to jump in the middle of a spontaneous dance highlight circle at a wedding reception. My family makes me happy. Coffee is awesome. Beer is awesomer. Serendipity might be my favorite word. Bioflavonoid is my favorite word to say. I like control but admit I have none. I start things and sometimes don’t finish them. I appreciate small things done well. I appreciate beauty in clouds, trees, everyday sunsets, nuts, shells, leaves and many things I see everyday. I like to enjoy. And to others, “I recommend it”.
