About

I am a ✨designer, 💻programmer, and ✏️writer based in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

While working a full-time job as a designer and software developer, I’ve built a consistent creative practice and launched several side projects. Now, I'm sharing what I've learned about burnout, nurturing your inner artist, and building creative projects with joy and intention.

You're in the right place if… #

  • You feel overwhelmed and uninspired by the busy cycle of everyday life
  • You’re tired of trying to optimize every aspect of your life through productivity hacks
  • You want to have more space and time to focus on building an intentional creative practice that brings meaning and joy to your day
  • You have multiple creative project ideas but struggle to actually finish any of them

My Story #

In 2014 I graduated with a bachelor's degree and started providing freelance graphic design services and writing about minimialism. I also played music with an all-ladies punk band and reignited my childhood passion for creativity through zine-making. Several years later, I completed a software development bootcamp and started writing code for a geospatial data startup.

In 2019 I struggled through a tough period of burnout. As an ambitious overachiever, I had reached my limit. I started asking myself the hard question: Who am I without all the doing?

I read Julia Cameron's The Artist’s Way and started writing Morning Pages. This blog and website was born from the healing and clarity that came from building a consistent creative practice.

I believe my purpose is to nourish myself and others with love, truth, beauty, creativity, and laughter. I also know that you (yes, you!) are an abundantly creative individual and that the world needs your art.

Thank you for being here.

Now let’s get back to testing spaghetti recipes, shall we?
