About

I’m a partner at Code Hat Labs software development, a pyrography artist at Portland Pyrography, and a handcrafted jewelry designer at Tracy J Designs. I’m also an online magazine publisher at Eighty Percent Raw, a young adult fiction author at Jack And The Magic Hat Maker, and an independent beauty consultant with AVON. My interests range from exploring my Swedish/Viking heritage to red wine, robust coffee, dark chocolate, and international travel.

I’d love to hear from you!

A LITTLE BUSINESS HISTORY

BROWN PAPER COFFEE COMPANY

In 1997, after meeting my sweetheart and life-partner, Jeff, he helped me launch a network marketing gourmet coffee/tea/biscotti & goodies company. I ran that business, recruiting consultants in 5 states, for more than 3 years.

These are some photos I did the food design for which were used in our printed marketing materials and on the website for BPCC. The last one is a photo of me and Jeff at the time we were working on this business.


 

 

 

MY OTHER BUSINESSES

EIGHTY PERCENT RAW

An online magazine I started in 2009. I recruited a team of more than 25 raw-food chefs and healthcare professionals who contributed articles and recipes every month for 4+ years.

PORTLAND PYROGRAPHY

In 2000 while we were living on 20 acres of raw land we purchased on Central Oregon’s High Desert, I taught myself how to burn photo reproductions onto wood and leather. Eventually people started offering to pay me to create pieces for them.

Tracy J Designs

At about the same time I also bought bolts and bolts of wire, semi-precious stone beads, jewelers tools, and began teaching myself to make handcrafted jewelry. I’ve sold my creations ever since.

Psychic Blessing/PDX Tarot

In 2003 I got my first deck of tarot cards. In 2008 I began working as a professional spiritual coach and guide. I worked professionally in this capacity for about 5 years. I continue that work for private clients, though not full-time as I used to.
