Color, texture, design, creativity are words that resonate with me. Activities that embody these attributes have been important as far back as I can remember, although I was not always able to put them into words.
Finding a release for these passions made for an interesting professional life. Real estate offered an early avenue where my interest was as much in design, i.e. assisting clients staging a home for sale, developing interior design ideas in purchase, helping create landscape plans, and assisting in the architectural design decisions for new construction and remodeling, as it was in sales.
I gravitated more and more to this creative side of the business as time progressed. Dissatisfied in having the artist in me rendered to the role of avocation when the opportunity arose to reinvent my vocation I took it.
