At the Smithsonian Folklife Festival, meeting people from many different cultures who strive for excellence was inspiring, as were my coworkers. Throughout the Center for Folklife and Cultural Heritage, the staff have a great sense of joie de vivre. Their individual and collective kindness, empathy, and down-to-earth attitudes are sincere and genuine. It was an honor to work there.
While working as a freelance graphic designer, I continue to meet enthusiastic people from many walks of life who motivate and inspire me. I am also pursuing my love of oil painting, and remodeling a house that was built in 1910. After doing most of the renovations myself, I could write a home improvement book titled "What Not To Do!" I have survived and thrived, however, and I love my new life, designing and painting.
I hope you enjoy my Web site. I look forward to hearing from you.
