I am innovative, patient, adaptive and friendly. I like working in a team environment and settle easily working independently. I ask questions and make sure I know what’s what. I love mentoring and teaching others, as well as being a student. Conceptualizing, sketching and designing, drawing and painting, and seeing projects through to completion (which includes technical details!) is where my creativity thrives. I pride myself in being able to adapt to new environments and industries. My work history has swept me across the very different worlds of broadcast media, natural foods/retail, and consumer goods.
