Ex-Digital Marketer Turned Full-Time Artist
I’ve spent my entire digital marketing career building someone else’s dream. In late 2016, I decided it was time to start pursuing my own dreams. I left my fancy title, comfortable salary, and corporate job behind. I’ve painted my entire life, but never relied on my art to support myself. That all changed, and I’ve never been happier.
I've worked in digital marketing since graduating college. In February 2016, I decided it was time to stop working towards someone else's dream. It was time to start working towards my own dreams.
I never lose. I only win or learn.
Creativity is in my DNA
I've created art my entire life. But it wasn't until 2016 that I gained the confidence to pursue art full-time.
After graduating from UC Davis, I began working in social media and digital marketing. I've worked with startups to publicly traded companies, and realize that everyone wants the same thing. Attention. Over the past 8 years, I've helped brands stand out in a very noisy digital world.
To Full-Time Artist
During a trip to Barcelona, Spain in early 2016, I decided that it was time to stop working to build someone else's dreams. It was time to pursue my own. I've always been passionate about art, but never had the courage (until now) to pursue art full-time.
