I attended Montessori schools for grades K through 6 in Wisconsin. This gave me a solid educational foundation so that when I went to public school at grade 7, I was ahead of the rest of the students. When I got to public school, I naturally gravitated towards people-oriented disciplines and excelled.
I attended San Diego State University where I majored in Economics. Upon graduation I got into customer relations management with a side-focus on marketing. This is when I got into sales.
After a few years of doing that, the Internet appeared and I began working for large companies and began using my varied skill set to achieve greater job satisfaction. I learned quickly that a product was like a tree falling in the forest. If no one knew about it, it might as well not exist.
All the while concurrent with my technology work I kept feeding my artistic passion in a variety of ways from painting to poetry and other creative passions.
So too with my passion for art. I never stopped painting and drawing and have been selling print of my work online.
I enjoy going to museums and concerts.
