I am traditionally trained as a fine artist with a keen ability to run businesses (my own and others). I specialize in managing small businesses offering creative goods and services.

I have years of experience with operating retail locations with unique inventory, custom orders, and specialty services. I have also handled merchandising, special event planning and building/maintaining websites on professional e-commerce platforms including Shopify & Squarespace.

I manage social media, email and Facebook messenger marketing campaigns in addition to in person and phone communications with customers. I can create visual content for print or online, including digital photo & video, custom graphics and hand drawn art. I also maintain attention to details on admin & bookkeeping duties.

My earlier work experience also includes work as a professional model and many years as a bartender/server and freelance artist.

I am well spoken, professional, goal oriented and dependable while also being intuitive, creative and understanding.
