The Road Home, Anything But Ordinary

There is truth in Robert Frost’s words. “Two roads diverged in a wood and I – I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference.” No where in that verse did Mr. Frost say following that road would be easy but, I do believe it has made all the difference.

I’m a classically trained illustrator with a BFA in communications, and a Master of Science in business development. Much like my educational background, the trajectory of my career path has been anything but cookie cutter.

My first job truly began on the back of a motorcycle. I helped to build one of the largest and most successful Harley-Davidson distributors in the world. And on the eve of the Internet forever changing how the world spins, I then became Webmistress for the fastest growing University in New Jersey. Twenty-years into the show, the curtain came down without the proverbial curtain call.

“Perfection is achieved, not when there is nothing more to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.”

How did I arrive here?

It Started On A Bike,

I arrived home one afternoon in 1999 with a new leather jacket in-hand. I told my parents I “needed” it. Well that was my first fatal mistake. But after much discussion, they both conceded and I went on my first motorcycle ride. That ride would lead me on quite the adventure over the next few years, as I’d help to build one of the largest and most successful Harley-Davidson distributors in the world. No, I never ended up buying one, (I’m a self-proclaimed klutz and didn’t think it was a good idea to ride stag). But to this day I can tell you what i like and don’t like about these iron horses.

My favorite was the original “Harley Hummer,” a 125cc KH that looked identical to the one Elvis appeared with on the 1956 cover of Enthusiast Magazine. They used to let me roll it around the giant showroom floor:) I LOVED that bike.

Then…

I Drove Up the Turnpike.

The Summer of 2001 I made one of the more odd career transitions, from designer and motorcycle historian to…Webmistress? I had a front-row seat for the evolution of the Internet, and at of all places, a University. I lived, I learned and taught what I knew. I became an expert in all things digital communications. It was this expertise and digital strategy tactics that I used to help three multi-million dollar businesses succeed beyond their wildest expectations. So I couldn’t comprehend when as a high-level female in technology I watched my career of 18-years vaporize in slow motion right before my eyes.

I’ve been up. I’ve been down. But even after my worst of days I still believe in standing up for what’s right, even when right may even mean starting all over again. When one door closes, another will inevitably open and in my case, that new door brought me back home.

For the love of aluminum.

Maybe It Was the Firetrucks…or Planes & Ships.

I don’t quite know where my love of rivets and the road came from. Maybe it was the firetrucks. After all, my childhood was spent in the shadow of Chief Bell’s fire house. Looking back, they represented the best of all worlds…shiny, red and full of chrome and gauges. Then again, maybe it was the planes and ships my parents would take us to go see. DC-10’s and other aluminum planes were the bees’ knees to me. And the big rivets on those Navy ships!!!! Although it is doubtful that my dad first introduced me to all these transportation toys to inspire me to start out on a motorcycle. But I definitely got the rivet bug from him.
