I am the glue that brings my family together! Also, one who challenges both sides of their brain.
From my siblings, I have been given a love for music and sense of fashion. The greatest gift of all would be the love for painting my brother and I shared that keeps us connected. When my brush soaks in the color it takes on a new form, a new look, just like myself when I become engaged in my work. The connection of brush to paint and paint to canvas is like a sweet release of all I have come to know. A new world becomes of the Earth where it is just me and the art.
My art creations (some of them) can be found here: KuLture.co
But wait, that’s not all!
My kind of art also includes spreadsheets of hundreds of thousands of data in need of deciphering (said no one ever). The mystery behind the gobs of information leading to the “what” so I can get to the “why” makes me feel like The Sherlock Holmes of Analytics.
These quirky, abstract structures of art allowed me to become a part of the Brand Fuel team and apply my love for supply chain management, project development and customer service. I found my seat at the table!
