How’d I get here?
I’ve been told I should have an “About Me” explanation on my blog. This is my attempt to do a twist on the classic bio:
Dropped my nursing major.
Switched to graphic design. Got rejected.
Started over. Went to art school.
Met the Y and L of Y&L. Fell hard.
Interviewed, three times
over three years.
Finally got the job.
Won my first national ADDY.
Won my first ADC Gold.
Had a daughter.
Won my first pencil.
Lost client. (Same day I made partner.)
Had a son.
Won my first Effie.
Named a “Person to Watch” by GDUSA.
Created Praythenews.com for Carmelite nuns.
Appeared on the Today Show (with the nuns).
Shaped the Brizo brand
and its partnership with Jason Wu
(back when nobody knew who he was).
Shortlisted for Cannes.
Judged my first CA Ad Annual.
Flew to Portland to gather wisdom
from holy grail W+K .
Met with Susan Hoffman.
Co-founded Creative Leaders Retreat.
Started a blog called Eunoia
about beautiful thinking.
Met some beautiful thinkers
while speaking across the country:
SCAD. VCU Brandcenter. BDW. BYU. Miami Ad School.
Minneapolis Ad Fed. Austin Ad Fed. Denver Ad Fed.
Still a student. Still growing. (Still failing.)
Still believe the best is yet to come.
Hopefully, my story can inspire yours.
