Newsletters from Adobe on the latest trends and how to’s are always in my inbox.

Whether it’s new vendors at a local farmer’s market or a hike near the ocean I love being a part of the community.

On my quiet days, I enjoy painting, working on new writing techniques, listening to music and just relaxing with friends.
