I will be turning 24 in less than a month. I just got married and am expecting my first child. I grew up in a small town in Northern NM, a town that I absolutely love but since there is no opportunities there, I moved to Denver, CO for college where I attained my Associates Degree in Graphic Design in 2004. I have been working as a Graphic Ad designer since 2004, mostly for newpapers but my recent job is working on ads and pre-press production for 2 regional magazines, American Cowboy and Southwest Art.

More About Me
My husband is an automotive technician, we own our own house and love all things that have to do with HORSEPOWER! I have fond love for art and hope to get back into painting soon so I can maybe use that as an extra source of income. I am a very laid back woman. I enjoy the outdoors and the peace it brings be and I love comedy...movies, name it...I am not the typical girlie-girl but I do enjoy a good pedicure once and a while.
