Life Outside UD

When I'm not sitting in front of my computer at work, I'm more than likely sitting in front of a computer at home. I am a creative enthusiast with an eye for design and a love for photography. I love everything artsy. If it peaks my imagination, I love it! When I do find down time, I enjoy bowling, kayaking, hiking and spending time with family and friends.

I reside in Newark with my husband and my 4-year-old daughter.
