Pinoodles: Pins & Oodles of Beautiful Things

I'm hyper-creative and do a myriad of things. I'm a theatre professor, speaker, author, playwright, artist, musician, podcast host, blogger, a Color Code Certified Independent Trainer and creativity expert.  I'm an idea person and I generate so many ideas I can't get them on paper fast enough!  Some make my handy-dandy notebook and some don't.  


I have a bachelor's and masters degree and both are in Communication & Theatre Arts.  I also hold an Executive Certificate in Negotiations from Notre Dame.  And I'm looking at classes all the time because I love learning!  


For not intending to be a writer, I sure do a fair amount of it. I've written five plays and four of them don't stink!  I've also written short stories, articles, numerous academic papers, and you can check my blog out at the right. My most recent work of art is a chapter in The Change --a book about self-empowerment. "I'm so happy to be included in the book and happy to know the wisdom of Jim Britt and Jim Lutes.   My chapter is entitled You're Already A Masterpiece and is about seeing yourself as God's work of art.  I'm currently working on a book exploring how ideas are combined, shaped and influenced and it's called The Amalgamation Effect. 


When I'm not directing the theatre program at Carl Sandburg College, I speak about my creative life, my passion for helping others find their big ideas and my joy in speaking, writing and training.  I want to help organizations thrive and be the best at what they do!  And when there's any time remaining, I work in my studio creating beautiful things for sale in my Etsy shops (click the links to the left). I share the rest of my house with Molly, my 13 year-old four-legged child.
