When I'm not working I like to do fun, creative things. Most of my down time I'm creating projects in graphic design for myself and clients - I'm steadily trying to build an empire! I also enjoy bike riding.

My partner and I were on the TV Show, Flea Market Flip in 2017. Also, this year I participated in the California AIDS Life Cycle to raise money for HIV/AIDS awareness and education. Another interesting fact is that I have a Bachelor's degree in Art Education and taught high school art.
