I learned how to wield an xacto blade and mix oil paint in my father’s studio and how to tackle word problems at my mother’s knee. I believe our devices connect us with each other, but they do not generate ideas. I prefer to speak face to face with my clients and to work out problems with pencil, paper and messy lines before getting “pixel-perfect.” I have worked as a waitress, a house-cleaner, and a shoe-shiner. I once shook hands with Pope John Paul II when I was the official photographer to the Hungarian Prime Minister. Now I build websites and take photos closer to home. I am also a lecturer in digital arts at Napa College. In my free time I draw, read books about math and ride my bike around town.
