Art, media and more - a portfolio of past and present

Background and Bio


I've published, art directed and production managed several print and digital magazines. I've collaborated on and written several books and poetry collections. I've worked in editing, publishing and media for websites, podcasts, blogs and documentary films. I've been an internationally published spokesmodel, marketer and nonprofit board member for animal rights activism.


For over 20 years, I've worked with luxury fashion and beauty brands, luxury events and upscale auction firms, which has enabled me to develop a trained eye for design, fashion, marketing, branding and fine art. My skill set and work ethic has helped both private and corporate  clients grow their revenue and revamp their marketing strategies with stellar results.


I've lived in many unique and different spaces including apartments, renovated vans, houses, barns, tents, condos and geodesic domes. I've learned to grace a space with functional solutions and can embrace minimalist living. With a background in design and interior styling, I excel at helping clients organize and arrange useful items that are simple, pretty and bring joy.

I've traveled nearly every state in the U.S. and add new worldwide adventures every year. I've lived vanlife and enjoyed first-class luxury resorts. I've hiked memorable locations including sections of the Appalachian Trail, the Benton-Mackaye Trail, the Colorado Trail, and the Continental Divide Trail. I enjoy taking road trips, camping, finding creative lodging and exploring cities with dog-friendly venues.


My first jobs were working in upscale boutique restaurants, and my passion for preparing and enjoying delicious simple food has never waned. I've lived vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free and omnivorous lifestyles and have harvested field-to-table and farm-to-table recipes. I believe improving and paying attention to our mental, emotional and physical relationship with food is one of the most important things we can do to live fulfilled and healthy lives.
