I’m blessed to have a beautiful family to enjoy life with. Having their interest and support makes all the difference in the world. We love Arizona. It’s now our home after living in California for so many years. I’m one of those weirdos that loves the heat and I appreciate the beauty you see in the desert. Our kids are well on their way in life and we’re excited about what God has in store for them and us. Every day is a blessing.
I’m often asked the meaning behind the name Apricot Studio. I grew up in Central California and spent many summers with my family working with apricots. I have lots of great memories during those summers. Many creatives choose some fruit, nut or anything fun and quirky as a name for their artisan studio. Apricot Studio just seems to fit. It has a special meaning to me and I just happen to love the way apricots taste too!
I’ve spent many years in marketing and technology. I’ve enjoyed working with Disney, Warner Bros, Lexus, Tiffany and many other brands over the years. I discovered that I’m gifted to be an entrepreneur and love the freedom to explore and grow my business and express my gifts helping others. I attribute my drive to my time as a soldier in the Army. I’m always in the process of refining me. It takes discipline to get through the refining process and failing forward along the way. Wonder how I’ll turn out when I grow up. 🙂

I enjoy being creative. I see opportunity as a blank canvas and love going through the process of discovery with my clients and watching their vision come to life. I remember as a kid loving to do art, color, watch cartoons, read comic books and doing anything creative. Being able to live life that way is like hitting the jackpot. I’m a big Disney fan and Disneyland is my happy place.
