My inspiration for my graphic work has come from my travels across the globe in the last 20+ years working as a graphic artist for the major networks (NBC, ABC, CBS, FOX & ESPN).
I have had the privilege of working on the Academy Awards, Super Bowls, as well as the Olympic Games in four countries. Along the way, I collected a few Emmys in the field of graphic design in the sports & entertainment field.
As a creative art director I pioneered the layout of a newspaper publication called Real Life & Times.
As an artist, I have created and illustrated a children's book called "Being Grown-Up is Not What I Thought". In addition, I have also traveled to third world countries on adventurous humanitarian trips.
As a culinary explorer, I have graduated from Professional Chef Courses at New School of Cooking. Check out my food blog She Paused 4 Thought.
