I am an Instigational Motivator.

An illustrator, writer, and designer working full-time from a home-based studio and mobile office, I have a passion for living the digitally-analog life while educating (and learning from) my daughter. My goal is to create a sustainable, mobile life for my family while teaching others how to work successfully and independently utilizing current technologies.

I believe in art as a healing tool and an agent of change as much as I believe that you can educate anyone through play. Living my life as creatively as possible, I have been freelance for more than 30 years, as well as a homeschool mom for 17 of that. I hold a graduate certificate in Instructional Design & Technology and a Masters in Creative Writing (screenwriting for film, television, gaming, and animation) from Full Sail University.

Bucket List
Moved to this post here.


“Water never waits. It changes shape and flows around things, and finds the secret paths no one else has thought about — the tiny hole through the roof or the bottom of the box. There’s no doubt it’s the most versatile of the five elements. It can wash away earth; it can put out fire; it can wear a piece of metal down and sweep it away. Even wood, which is its natural complement, can’t survive without being nurtured by water.”

– Arthur Golden, Memoirs of a Geisha
