I love designing, creating, making and doing. Doing little bit of everything keeps me busy, and I am constantly multi-tasking. I overuse exclamation marks. And I am terrible at saying “no.” But I view all those things as positives!
Over the years, I have worked in a variety of fields, from newspapers, to rock ‘n’ roll, to advertising. Each experience has certainly been different and has taught me something new. My best advice? Never stop learning! You never know where you might end up.
Being at PEG allows me to combine my favorite things, in one extraordinary working environment. We have excellent people, doing excellent work, in an excellent city!

Both sides of my family are from Philadelphia, PA. My parents moved out to the burbs/Amish country in the mid-80s. Then enter me! And my brother, Andrew, who is 1.5 years younger. My sister-in-law, Tiffany, has been hanging out with our family basically since we were all in high school. We have always had some sort of animal running around that are also family.
