About 

I am currently the Director and Musical Director at Curbsyde Productions, and there isn’t a time where you won’t find me looking for that perfect angle or a way to be creative, I like to be behind the camera and focusing my attention to details in every project. If it involves hanging out of a helicopter, the back of a motorcycle I'll probably have the camera in front of me. Most likely, you will hear some of my compositions on the Curbsyde soundtracks. My love for travel keeps her feet itchy, and she is not afraid to drop a motorcycle or two, in the name of adventure!

I have done a lot of work with Clients and Designer while not being in the same country as the client, or the same country as the project!  I excel at problem solving involving specialized systems or requirements.  My specialty is Technical knowledge and integrating systems within design. I have worked with small spaces for most of my design career and as such also have the capability of designing interiors for aircraft/ or other crafts where it involves specifications of weight and balance and fire restrictions.  I'm hands on, working closely with carpenters I am there every step of the way, able to answer technical design questions and work through any design issues.  I worked closely with Hafele Hardware, Blum and more finding and designing specialized hardware for the Yacht Industry.

I'm a hardworking individual with a flare for adventure.  In 2003 my husband and I did our first round the world trip, seeing the sites of Europe, the Middle East and Australia.  Then in 2006 we flew a small aircraft around the world for a children's charity raising over 100,000 towards their hospital project!  When the company we both worked for closed it's doors in 2008, we decided to turn our direction to Travel, and produced travel documentaries for the Motorcycle industry.  We road our motorcycles around New Zealand, Australia, Canada, US and Mexico with one of our greatest achievements of the Ice Roads of the Canadian North in the middle of winter!  Despite all the travel, I still have a love for Architecture and design and would like to see if I can find a position that would be challenging, educational and fun!
