About Me: I'm a mama to a baby named Costa, wife to Tyler, a summer dweller in North Lake Tahoe and a traveler from October to May with my little family. We spend most of our off season traveling around the world while calling Santa Barbara, California home. I own and run a boutique graphic + web design studio where I am the website crafter + brand designer for small businesses and solo-entrepreneurs. I help bring people's visions to life by creating their dream brand and home on the Internet. I seriously love what I do and I have the honor of helping others do the same.

Why do you want to be a part of heymama?: I found that connecting with likeminded women has been the single most important part of my business' success and now that I have a baby, I want to expand my community to the mama force of creative, amazing women.
What are your brand goals for this year?: I am expanding my business as we speak by hiring a new team member and launching my new website, so 2017 is like a refresh button for ASDC and my life as a working mama.

What is something that people would be surprised to know about you?: I studied Political Science in school, so I taught myself everything I know about graphic design.
If you could tell your 20 year old self one thing, what would it be?: He's just not the one for you! - Let it go! Hire a professional eyebrow shaper, surf more, maybe you don't need to take out alllll those student loans, trust your gut and go to art school and don't get that tattoo, just don't.
