About Cassie

Me, Myself, & I

What I'm all about

I was born and raised in Northern California and spent my childhood crafting, working on the computer, or visiting the local movie theater. My mother's influence of art and film and my father's influence of technology and innovation led  me to pursue a bachelor of fine arts degree in film and television. While in college I got a job as a makeup artist which opened a new world to me. It eventually lead me to diploma at a trade school studying makeup for film and television. It was at this point I took my passion and transferred it to corporate cosmetics designing makeup and tool lines for several global cosmetics companies.


After many years working in the cosmetics industry I decided to take a new path into graphic design. I begin my career as a graphic designer and marketing coordinator for several luxury real estate brokerages. It was around this time I fell in love with calligraphy and began studying it as a hobby. My passion for the written text has remained constant ever since. I continue to work as a marketing coordinator and do calligraphy in my spare time.
