I like Swing music, appreciate Art Deco and Retro Wave, and enjoy calm days at home with my husband whom I collaborate with on many projects.

I also own and fly RC airplanes, maintain a community garden, do my own automotive work, and relish in tidyness.


I'm available in-person within the Chicago area, or anywhere in the world via online freelancing. I accept direct commissions, or those done through the Upwork network. Feel free to reach out to me, I can usually respond same-day.
