Since it's International Women's Day I'm posting another blog post! Two in one day, holy cow bells!!! This goes out to all the Women in the world, much love to ya!!!
You've had one of the toughest days of your career, a complete failure, you want to quit and somehow you find yourself bellied up to a bar sulking in your sorrows over a glass of bourbon. What person in history/life would you want serendipitously sitting next to you, dead or alive? And what advice would you want from them?
What song do you sing to yourself or listen to that gets you pumped or helps get you outta a funk?
If you could have any super power what would it be and why?
I first came across Kat while reading about her coaching in a bike magazine. So of course, I reached out to her. This was a few years back and we stayed in distant touch until I put "Case of the Nomads" together. Kat asked me if I would like to come volunteer at her Gravity Girls Camp in July 2015 and I could help the girls make jewelry outta bike inner tubes. Hellz Yeah, I think was my subtle response!! I learned so much from Kat, the other coaches and the girls. I was totally taken by the skills shown on and off the bike, Kat has it dialed in to what's important, helpful life skills. Thanks Kat for rocking it and passing along your vast knowledge of all around radness!!! I'd shred with you any day!!

Measure : 2 3/4" long x 1 3/4" wide x 1/2" deep
Art evolves while philosophies change along with lifestyles. I'm embracing the path my work is going. I've been using items from the area where I've visited and letting go of limits I unknowingly set that held back my thoughts of my art.
Kat also introduced me to IMBA's ICP program which I'm stoked to say I just passed Level 1!!! Thanks Kat, my instructor Jason and the guys (Josh, Tim, Chuck, Ilych and Nick) who also became certified in Tustin. Badass y'all!
