I've lived in 3 different countries, and now live in Florida, USA.

September 2012 I came to 99Designs as a client.
September 2017 I came back as a designer to do some work when my schedule permits.

As an author, I know getting your cover done is an exciting time that brings your book to life. I enjoy creating designs and being a part of that process. :)
