San Francisco native, daughter of immigrants, world traveler, yogaholic, and now a nurse, post a career as a graphic designer. I also make art and have a real love for interior design. Attended school in Ireland, traveled Asia for a year, lived in Sri Lanka, Hawaii, and Canada, and now visit Europe at least twice a year for family (when there’s not a pandemic!). I hope to meet you in the not too distant future!
