FAVORITE PROJECT:
As Co-Founder & Creative Director of PiPo Press Stationery & Paper Goods, the development of our retail brand was my baby: logo, identity, product design, marketing, advertising and promotions. Our brand encompassed a variety of products such as holiday cards, invitations, corporate cards, greeting cards, notepads and gift items. Licensed product lines were also developed for online retailers such as Zazzle, Fine Stationery and Snapfish.

FAVORITE COLOR: 
Rainbow is my favorite color.  But if I have to choose just one, orange it is!  

DAILY INSPIRATION:
My dog Kodi. He gets snuggles on demand and is a very fast runner. 

DESIGN GURU:
Jonathan Adler, I love you.  I met him at a book signing a few years ago and was speechless. We share a love of the color orange, so that was my ice breaker. 

EDUCATION:
Syracuse University, followed by learning from creative partners and clients. Each job is a learning opportunity with different needs, budgets and challenges. 

BEST DAY EVER:  A family hike, lounge time, a dog snuggle, watching my children play sports, a quick shopping stop (s-h-o-e-s!), a home cooked meal by my daughter, with time for some Instagram inspiration.
