Thank you for stopping by.
I am inspired by sharing, diversity in thinking and living. I believe our life is our art.
I spent an amazing 11 years in New York and attended The Fashion Institute of Technology and studied film at NYU. New York City was everything I thought it was and more. Gotham was my first true love. I grew up skiing in the Canadian Rockies ;)
I currently live in Venice, CA., which at times can seem like the 6th borough. I would not feel so at home here in California if it were not for my time in N.Y.C. Living in Venice is like the East Village with a beach.
My background is in advertising and new media, primarily as a creative/art director. Heavy.com and MyActiveDriveWay were two huge influences during my time in the big city, because I was part of their inception and growth as creative powerhouses. A do-it-yourself publishing platform called Uber.com brought me to the west coast, and I worked with and learned from heads of pioneer social networking and music platforms Friendster and Napster.
I have been fortunate enough to launch a mobile app, work as a garmento, brand a grilled cheese truck, and own my first dog since I have been living in California. Los Angeles continues to inspire and Venice a.k.a. 'Silicon Beach', fuels my NY state of mind and pioneering spirit.
I am a creative hybrid — ecosystem thinker in the internet of things that is today. Futurists and altruists are my favorite aliens. I like to hang out with cultural hackers ;)
One of my favorite quotes:
"A CONCEPT THAT ISN'T DANGEROUS IS HARDLY WORTH CALLING A CONCEPT AT ALL." - Oscar Wilde
