About Me

I graduated from the University of Georgia in 1992 with a BA in Psychology. Shortly after graduating, I found myself working in my family's printing and design business. After my parents retired, they gave the company to my sister and myself. I'm a (mostly) self-taught graphic designer with an eye for symmetry, balance, and the perfect amount of quirkiness to be original, attention grabbing, and memorable. 

I love spending time with my family and call the Smoky Mountains of Western NC my heart's home. I love getting away from the hustle & bustle of Metro Atlanta for a "glamping" trip. Any Saturday in the Fall will find me cheering on my beloved Georgia Bulldogs. Some seasons are easier than others for that particular passion of mine. Crisp Fall and Spring evenings find a gathering of family, and friends who are more like family, at my home in Lawrenceville, GA enjoying a fire pit night, accompanied by plenty of great stories and laughter.

I'm an avid reader and love when I can find a book that captures my heart and soul and transports me to another experience.

I have a love of snow that not many can understand and Christmas Eve is my favorite "holiday".
