How a graphic designer from Boston landed in Deadwood by way of Del Mar, California...

I'm originally from a small town in Massachusetts, and I knew from a very young age I wanted to be an artist. My Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Rhode Island School of Design almost guaranteed a graphic design job, but the market in Boston felt saturated, so I chose San Diego as my destination after college.

One year spent revamping the publishing materials of a seminar company (the "No Money Down" guru, Robert G. Allen) followed by a year partnering in a multimedia business (working in Maui for motivation speaker Anthony Robbins) was enough time in California for this small-town girl.

The log home of my dreams landed me in Deadwood, Oregon (of all places) in 1992 where I launched my own graphic design studio. My previous business partner launched a publishing company, WisdomKeepers, from that log home with my help. We sent beautifully designed proposals to *big* people visually presenting our ideas. He was the multimedia pro — shooting, editing, and producing the audio tapes, videos, and multimedia presentations for clients. I would do the package design and promotional materials.

A product design for His Holiness, The Dalai Lama of Tibet, was a highlight of my first few months here. Another one — the day the phone rang and it was Coretta Scott King responding to the proposal for "Let Freedom Ring," a beautiful compilation of music and quotes. The demo was breathtaking. On another day it was Ken Blanchard responding to "Living in the Presence" a project about spirituality in the workplace. Kenny Loggins called, we had a relationship project in the works with Kenny and his wife Julia. And we had done a prototype for "Illusions" with Richard Bach.

Only the first project, for The Dalai Lama, came to fruition back in '92 but it was amazing to even have spoken to these incredible people. The wisdomkeeper returned to California in 1993 and I had to move out of that beautiful log house. But, I remained here, having found my home in Deadwood.

What I learned over those years was that anything was possible! I'm truly living my dream.
