I'm a maker of things digital and physical and have been involved in the arts since I was a child. A native Texan, I moved to New York City at sixteen to study acting at NYU's School of the Arts. Later, while on scholarship at Film/Video Arts, an independent film production center in New York, I discovered Photoshop and my love affair with design began. As a young dancer from South Texas with stars in her eyes and dreams of The Great White Way, I certainly never thought I'd end up programming Actionscript or trying to learn Rhino 3D. I probably should've paid more attention in math class.
As much as I enjoyed designing movie websites and promotional games, I love making things you can touch even more, tangible objects that are either functional or decorative...or both. So, after working as an interactive designer and art director at Warner Bros. Pictures for nearly 10 years, I took a leap of faith and left full-time work at the studio to tackle several side projects.
Leaving a good job and exceptional colleagues in the midst of an economic crisis was terrifying, but the risk was worth it. Having the time to devote to my own projects is a gift; I am incredibly lucky to be able to pursue my passions.
Recently, I completed another production run of the mltpl lamp, a modern table lamp with a customizable shade, and I've just introduced a new lamp, the Lit Lamp, made of wood and edge-lit neon acrylic. It's a tiny little lamp with a whole lotta style!
