I was nudged and encouraged into my current career by my most recent ex-boyfriend.  It was becoming familiar with Grace Coddington's work, however, that inspired me to picture myself as a capable art director and producer - long before I met that dude.  Although she may not know that I even exist, I think of her as my career fairy godmother.  As I develop my artistic voice in service of brands, publications, and clients, I always keep her example in mind of not just being awesome and being good at this, but also infusing care and refinement into any project I find myself engaged in.  I hope I'm doing her proud!
