Who I am:
An artist. A mom. A wife. A refrigerator art historian. The winner of most limbo contests.
How I came to design for Birthday Express:
At the age of four, I decided that when I grew up I should draw. So I've been happily doing that ever since. When not drawing, I spend hours admiring color palettes, fonts and photography. Creating parties for Birthday Express lets me combine my love of design, styling and all things girly.
Favorite design trend:
Polka dots. They're classic, modern and fun. Large or small, in any color — I'm a big fan.

Personal party must-haves:
One of the best things about throwing a party is the food. For me, it doesn't get much better than two Seattle-based dessert companies: Molly Moon's Homemade Ice Cream (I'm partial to their Salted Caramel) and anything baked by Trophy Cupcakes. They take your classic cake and ice cream combo to another level.
Where you might find me on my days off:
At a coffeehouse, in my kitchen (attempting something I saw on Pinterest), or at various local playgrounds turning around whenever someone says, "Mom."
