I am former graphic/web designer turned diplomat. Currently, I work for the Department of State as a Management Officer. Since 2005 I’ve been living overseas and have served in Burma, Dubai, Okinawa, and currently in Phnom Penh. Though I’m no longer working in an art field, my main hobby has been portrait photography. I am married to Derek who is also a VCU arts alumni and we have a little girl, who is showing a lot of promise in the creative arts. My goal is to stay overseas and I hope to return one day to the US to start a 2nd career related in the arts.
