I'm a multifaceted creator:
painter, web designer, engineer, educator and community builder, with a mission to help artists thrive in this new online selling space.
I've been keepin' it real since 1990.
After a few years, I was tired of the politics, the two-weeks a year vacations and how I was welcome to use my creativity only within the tiny box of what I was asked.
I started multiple ventures inside the company as a way to feed the creative-entrepreneur living inside. I even spent 6 months in the business side of the company as a business analyst, hoping that would be the answer… the struggle was real.
I finally built up the courage to admit that this urge could not be met by working for someone else. I quit, traveled for months and started my own creative businesses. Now I run my own online art business + a web design agency where I help artists navigate the online art selling space and a few other side businesses that I'll be rolling out in the next few months.
After quitting my job with no idea what would come next, I realized that life was about making opportunities out of situations instead of waiting for them—or someone else's permission—to happen. Today, this philosophy fuels me as one creative burst follows another: juggling web design projects while maintaining my own art practice; leading clubhouse rooms where artists explore the options available to them for building a thriving art business; spearheading programs to support artists navigate the e-commerce space, all while maintaining a location-independent lifestyle to travel.
I have a masters in systems design engineering.... think robots, cars, and other complex systems.
It took a loooong time to accept this one, but boy-o-boy it feels good.
I think of this one as where my engineering and artistic sides merge.
Whenever I tell the story of how Ali and I met, people say it reminds them of Anne of Green Gables.
I promise I didn't break a slate on his head... but almost!
One of the most challenging and equally rewarding things I’ve ever done. After so many years of searching I finally feel I’m on the path I belong.
My life has been a back and forth between two countries, two cultures and two languages.
