Here’s a little more about me and my what, why, and how.

My background is in visual design and display, merchandising, sales and training, and interior and floral design.

As a kid, I enjoyed making art and art history, antiques, music, reading, and writing. I went to school for floral design and horticulture, became a floral designer, and earned my certification in interior designer from the Metropolitan Institute of Design in New York.

  My marketing experience began with Apple Computer in 1998. I spent five years working with them through an outsource marketing company. Based in New York City, I was responsible for the reseller channel in the North East and later in the South East. Prior to the launch of Apple’s own retail stores, I ensured delivery of Apple’s corporate brand identity, image, strategy, and training.

  Presenting and selling Apple was a challenge before iPod and iPhone! There were many objections to overcome from store managers, sales associates, and customers alike.  I conducted training, ensured proper display of marketing assets, and maintained the Apple ‘store-within-a-store’ experience. I increased sales and product knowledge in my NYC market for which I received several acknowledgments and awards from Apple and won several sales contests.

  I later relocated to the South East region where I supervised more than forty part-time ‘Apple Power Reps’ in ten states. I attended several Macworld Expos and received world-class training at the Apple Campus. Working with Apple was truly a privilege and a pleasure, and got me hooked on marketing and the minimalist design aesthetic!
