1. What is your current occupation?

Currently, I have a several irons in the fire. (It's my nature.) Part of my time I spend as a solo freelancer focusing on WordPress design, development, and digital strategy. Another part of my time is spent pursuing a new path as a humorist, writing and cartooning around dealing with death through humor. And yet another part of my time is spent serving as President of Cape Cod Roller Derby.

2. What do you love most about your job and why?

After being an employee for decades, I love the freedom that being an independent maker gives me. Freedom of my time for sure, but also freedom to work with clients from Australia to Hong Kong to New York City to Cape Cod!

3. What has changed in your industry in the past five years?

The design industry has definitely changed in the past 5-10 years. It came from being mostly print driven, to designers having to learn code and other technologies. Which left some happy to see that change, and others not so much. But for me, having a background serving in Fixed and Combat Communications in the Massachusetts Air National Guard, I welcomed the techie learning curve into the creative design world.

4. How has CapeSpace improved your work life?

I GET SO MUCH DONE HERE! I mainly work from a home office, but that can be distracting at times—i.e. I have two attention seeking cats. CapeSpace gives me a place to stay focused and be productive, be around other humans during the day, and reminds me to eat lunch—something no one told me I'd forget to do when I started working on my own 5 years ago!
