Biography

After graduation from college with a Communications degree and minor in graphic design I quickly put it to use in my artistic endeavors. My inspiration has come from my travels across the globe in the last 34+ years visiting 68 countries. I have had the privilege of working on the Academy Awards, Super Bowls, as well as the Olympic Games in four countries. But the biggest joy is doing humanitarian work – whether it is working locally feeding the homeless or globally being a communications specialist in Africa, team building in India, communicating ground efforts through social media outlets for Haiti, and beyond.

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.
