everyday me

I am a master's degree candidate at the University of Missouri online program in Instructional Technologies and Design.
I will obtain my degree in 2019.
In 2018, I received the CareerFoundry Basic UX Certificate, and several web accessibility certificates.
Prior to my current career, I had a long career in the film industry, both in front of and behind the camera.

I have a love of all animals.
My adorable(see for yourself) GSD is my best friend.
We love to explore all the amazing places in San Diego that allow dogs. Thank you San Diego and all your dog-friendly business owners!

My love of Halloween
gives me the chance to create prize-winning costumes
(count 'em: 25!),
and amazing yard displays.
The photo shows me as verdigris garden sculpture. This was one of the few non-scary costumes I've designed.

Yup, I was a gargoyle, complete with movable wings and a spire. What's a gargoyle without a building spire to cling to?
