Where do you live, and where are you from?

I currently live in Colorado Springs, CO. I remember growing up in Queens, N.Y., with my big Italian family!

Where's your favorite place to be outside?

I love being in the mountains or near the ocean. I've been lucky enough to experience the best of both worlds!

Why do you create?

"The world always seems brighter when you've just made something that wasn't there before." - Neil Gaiman.

This is the best way I can articulate why I create. I have had some amazing tole models in art. First was a high school teacher who never let me say "I can''t," and my mother-in-law, who inspires me every day.

How would you describe yourself in 20 words or less?

I am compassionate, bubbly, creative, quirky and always improving!
