About me

I’m originally from Chicago, where I began my professional career in public relations and marketing after earning an undergraduate degree in Journalism from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. The first project I ever worked on was pretty amazing: Gerhard Richter Paintings at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago. The really fun thing about the opening was that the artist was not comfortable mingling with the guests, and instead he spent the entire evening up at the check-in desk, talking with the lowly check-in girl, who was me. This was the late 1980s and not long after I’d studied in Aix-en-Provence, France. I painted at a school there called Leo Marchutz, where I realized I was no good at making art, but loved to be around it as much as possible, nonetheless.
