I'm a creative entrepreneur.

I've been an artist & an academic for as long as I can remember but I'm also a designer, non-profit co-founder and executive, app builder, glass sculptor, welder, jewelry maker, small business & restaurant owner.

...Listed this way, I sound nuts. ;)

In the late 90's while immersed in my art education I found myself struggling to define purpose and functionality instead of pure expression. That's why I love design. It's deliberate, intentional, functional, and powerful.

I started my career in 1999 freelancing and accepted a gig in tv production, creating pilot cartoons and acting as art director for a small production company in Northern Virginia. I then had a couple year stint of teaching college students graphic and web design while building my freelance business before moving to New York City. Once I hit the big apple I hit the corporate scene. For several years freelance was light as I worked for some great companies and big brands and learned design maturity & simplicity, technical savvy, and corporate politicking. I had opportunities to travel, meet incredible people, build brands, build teams and nurture talented designers.

My main focus is design. I formally re-established Treemarie LLC in 2011, focusing on brand design, development & strategy, website & mobile app design & build, user experience, email design & marketing, and print design. I am serious about design. And I seriously have fun. I approach every design challenge with enthusiasm to not just solve the problem, but push boundaries on those solutions.

Some other things I do:

I am Co-Founder and Chief Operating Office at AbilityList.org, a NYC based non-profit that provides technology innovation to people with disabilities... "the Craigslist for people with disabilities".

I own & operate Treemarie Studio in Williamsburg Brooklyn where I make original stained glass mosaics & windows, sculpture, furniture pieces, jewelry, trinkets and gift items.

I own & operate Brooklyn Nook, a unique vacation rental experience in the heart of Williamsburg Brooklyn.

I am Founding Partner of a craft beer & small plates restaurant in Long Island City, NY called, Opendoor.
