I was born in New York, grew up in the suburbs of Chicago and have lived in Minnesota for the last 10 years. Since I moved to Minneapolis, I've been on a quest to do something expressive and exciting, while also making a positive splash in the community. After graduating from the University of Minnesota, I began my financial services career in corporate America. I was missing an element of creativity in my day-to-day life, which is when I started to draw. In a world of technology, never underestimate the power of a hardcopy greeting card. I've always enjoyed purchasing cards for family and friends, so I thought there was an opportunity for me to be creative and reach the community on my own - that's how MNiCards began.
