My Life Is #MoreThanGraphics

As much as I am passionate about providing creative services I strive to be more than just the graphics I create. Over the years my hashtag #MoreThanGraphics has become more than just a marketing slogan; its become a life principle for myself that I execute through storytelling and round table discussions with my co-hosts, all women of color as producer of the #MoreThanGraphics podcast.

Through webinars,  in person workshops and varying levels of speaking engagements. I share my love of applying the ‘strategy of play’ throughout seasons of life as a professional creative,  a wife,  mother of multiracial sons and a nerd fanatic. 

We're the tribe with a vibe
