I like to
think that if we do one thing we love in our lives, we've found
some measure of success. I've been blessed with finding ways
to connect the things I love and creating new opportunities
from those connections. After graduating as an English major
from Georgetown University, I got a degree in graphic design
and spent some fantastic volunteer time as an elementary school
art teacher. While freelancing as a designer, I entered graduate
school, and earned a degree in Art Education/Museum Studies.
I created, facilitated, and enjoyed some amazing educational
experiences at the Blanton Museum of Art in Austin, ArtPace
in San Antonio, and at the Dallas Museum of Art. And of course,
kept writing and editing for myself and others throughout.
I write poetry,
travel, spend time with family, get involved in community service,
and create art when I get the chance. I also assistant teach
Indian dance, and take classes to further my own knowledge.
And I rarely, rarely pass up a chance to eat dessert.
