H2

I’ve been doing my best to recharge my batteries for the second half of 2017. It’s been slow-going since coming back from summer shutdown; shockingly, I’ve been finding my usual 5:30 A.M. wake up time to be a wee bit less appealing than it was back in June…

However, the best part about my job is now kicking into high-gear, and starting in August I’ll be off on another crazy adventure that will reach its grand finale at Adobe MAX 2017 in Las Vegas this October.

On Friday, we announced the remaining Semifinalists in this year’s Adobe Design Achievement Awards:

In Style

One week into 2017, and I’m STILL not fully recovered from my holiday plague. Dammit.

That said, it didn’t stop me and my rad team at work from totally CRUSHING the 4th Annual de Youngsters Art Party at San Francisco’s de Young Museum in Golden Gate Park this past Friday night.

Just a little victory lap to end a long day (and project), right through our backdrop.

Chronic Creationism

I gave birth to a special baby this weekend. I named it Adobe Career Bootcamp.

I’ve been working on it for just about exactly nine months now (but honestly, I could have planned its arrival a little better; not gonna lie). Still, I test drove it in-utero while at Adobe MAX earlier this month, and I knew it would be a special addition to the world… Continue reading

1 x 2

One year ago: a fresher on her first day on the job (and the bus).

One year ago: a fresher on her first day on the job (and the bus).

It’s the one year anniversary.

OF EVERYTHING.

One year ago today – August 3, 2015 – I started my new job, as Community Engagement Manager for Adobe’s Digital Media business.

AND

Trent and I closed on our vacation home. Our dream a-frame mountain party house, on the Ebbetts Pass in the Sierra Nevada.

That was a big day. I had a lot going on. But believe it or not, one year later, I have even more going on now.

Like… evening art-making workshops on iPads with child cancer patients and Creative Collisions at The Tech Museum in San Jose and media rollouts for our new Adobe Studio and interview requests from national press and travel orders from my VP and travel orders from my family and my 20 year high school reunion (EEK!) and preparations for Adobe MAX and preparations for Labor Day at the cabin and judging weekend for the ADAA

In short, I feel like this:

Light Painting: back and better than ever! #ilovemyjob #adobelife @futureartsnow @thetechmuseum (#sotired!)

A little wild.

But I look amazing, right?

Dreaming Big

 

MNST.jpg

For months I’ve been waiting for the moment when I finally got to write a blog about the really, really, really big thing I’ve been doing at work this past year – my first year at Adobe. It’s the biggest thing I’ve taken on yet in my career, truly.

And now, the time has come. I’m cleared for takeoff to talk. I’ve written the blog.

I didn’t write it here, though. I wrote it on Adobe’s corporate site. And slightly differently on our internal employee blog (which you can’t see). And it’s all over our social media now. And I’m doing press interviews. And oh my god, doing big things for a huge company – big things that the huge company has never done before – is so exhausting.  Continue reading
