Lurking 101

Hi, thanks for coming. I grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio (home of WKRP, Graeter's and Skyline Chilli) and now live in London (home of the BBC, chicken tikka masala and jellied eels). Creativity has always been important to me and I have a BA and MA in Art History from the University of Cincinnati’s College of Design, Architecture, Art and Planning. It's a cool building, look it up.

I work in publishing and always strive to give equal importance to creative thinking and commercial development. In my free time I am illustrator (feel free to contact me for jobs and rates) and am really good at convincing myself that "tomorrow, I will finally download that running app."

 

Likes: Bowling, girl power, Barbra Streisand, runny eggs, crabbing, and a good sharp cheddar

Dislikes: Bananas, tartare sauce, nail clipping on public transportation, and other people whistling

 

Here's a little sampling of what I've done over the years:
