    I am currently working within the arts and entertainment industry and after working with the Future Forest Festival that took place July 26 – 29, 2019, have decided to focus my attention on creating a creative space to welcome visiting artists, performers and industry representatives. With this year’s festival concluded, I am actively seeking opportunities within the art & entertainment industry that helps promote the creation of a more spiritually aware and mindful society. I have a diverse set of talents that I can offer to help others and am interested in sharing my knowledge with those who are interested in diversifying their skill set. My skills include Photography, Graphic Design, Copy Writing, Communications and Project Planning. I am proficient with a variety of software applications including Adobe Creative Suite, Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, MS Project, Power Point & Outlook), STACK take-off Estimating, Chief Architect, Smart Draw, Logify, POW and a variety of Web Page Design and SEO tools.

    I have spent the last three years in the Gandoca Wildlife Reserve located on the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica. I remained there to provide my son with the opportunity to attend an alternative learning early education centre. With children representing seven nationalities in his classroom alone; it was well worth putting my career on a somewhat different path to hear him speaking three languages at the tender age of four.

    Beyond enjoying the natural wonder of the region; it afforded me the opportunity to revisit my love of welcoming new visitors to the area. My 20 years in the photography industry provided me with the ability to travel extensively and while in the Puerto Viejo area I was able to apply my personal knowledge of travel and people skills within the hospitality industry while working on contract with two boutique style hotels then a “Rasta Bar & Restaurant”. I was also lucky enough to pick up Spanish and brush up on my French.

    The world of Photography and Graphic Design has seen dramatic changes over the last several years and I have expanded my creative abilities as the needs of my clients changed. What was once a very interactive experience with clients, has transformed in many ways to a fairly isolated process primarily in front of the screen instead of behind the lens. While working within the world of travel and tourism, I realized how much I missed and enjoyed personal interactions with people. The area is well known for it’s music scene and I was lucky enough to help with several events including “songs of the sirens” in collaboration with the legendary Margot Day.

    I have a lifetime of event planning knowledge and high standards when it comes to maximizing an event’s marketing potential. I am excited to apply that knowledge with a forward thinking and creative individuals who want to be fulfilled in ways that money simply can’t buy. I have realized over my career that how much you make isn’t nearly as important as how much you enjoy making it. Few things have given me as much satisfaction as working with talented people in the entertainment and music industry and with a beautiful home on the South Shore – want to welcome like minded individuals to be a part of making magic.
