WHAT DO YOU MAKE?

I currently have a thousand irons in the fire but when it comes down to it, I make art. My ultimate goal is to paint full-time and open a gallery/classroom space in Pittsburgh, but in the meantime I offer other creative services - graphic design, photography, and branding being the primary focuses.

WHERE ARE YOU FROM?

Born and raised in Pittsburgh, PA, and I couldn't be more proud of it.

WHAT HAS BEEN MAKING YOU EXCITED LATELY?

Okay, we're getting REAL geeky up in here, but I'm convinced one of my missions in life is to play the game of Survivor, so I've been brainstorming creative ways to get noticed by their casting department. Storyboarding different video ideas has been majorly fun, but there must be better way to stand out than a cool audition video - everyone makes a video! So that is my current side project, coming up with a legendary idea to get on Survivor.

IF YOU COULD LEARN A NEW SKILL, WHAT WOULD IT BE?

Effective+direct communication. I'm fairly introverted and shy by nature.

WHERE CAN WE FIND YOUR PRODUCTS?

On my website and on instagram.

COFFEE OR TEA?

Coffee, all day every day.

WHAT DO YOU WATCH OR LISTEN TO IN THE BACKGROUND WHEN YOU ARE MAKING?

It rotates between reruns of "Friends," various Spotify playlists and podcasts. I've also started listening to audiobooks again, and highly recommend "Molly's Game."

SHARE 5 FUN FACTS ABOUT YOURSELF:

- My thumbs are two different sizes

- I try to hide a secret message or symbol in all of my paintings

- I've dreamt about being a full-time artist since I was four years old
