Thanks for visiting my website. Let me take this opportunity to tell you a few things you won’t find on my resume, for the fun of it (and because resumes are like book covers). I’ve had the great fortune of experiencing my life through the arts. As a youth I took tap, jazz, ballet, and voice lessons, with shorter attempts at flute and figure skating. By the end of high school I had eleven years of dance training, been in nine musical theatre productions, and had participated in every school choir my elective credits allowed. My college years saw a shift towards the visual arts as I earned a degree in graphic design during the great switch from analogue to digital platforms (this wasn’t that long ago!). I remain grateful that my degree required thorough exploration of many studio arts, and to this day I seek out opportunities to create and produce with paint, fiber, or whatever mixed media I have handy. As for music, I’m better off listening to it, and as for dance – well, I still do that!
As a professional I have a well rounded skill set garnered from work in hospitality, as an entrepreneur, and as an administrator. Add that to an MS in Nonprofit Arts Management, and what you end up with is a creative professional with excellent interpersonal skills who can bring value to a team in a multitude of ways! I am independently productive, though I find great collaborations joyful, the same way I find a dog in a car with its head out the window joyful. I will make the coffee run when it’s my turn, (even though I will usually bring my coffee from home), and I will contribute beverages or durables to office pot lucks because, honestly, I’ve never felt very natural in the kitchen (but I’d be happy to host the annual BBQ). I have worked on all sorts of teams and have developed a special fondness for groups of dynamic people that turn work into a forward thinking culture of possibility, just because they can.
