About me

Industry Arts
Occupation Designer/Cultural Resources Specialist/Author
Location Warren, Michigan, United States
Introduction NYC resident for almost 25 years; it's true that when it "gets in your blood" nothing else compares. Worked in television production (CBS, NBC, ABC) and feature film production (IATSE member), did freelance graphics, architectural interior design, cosmetic company buying (imported gifts and various packaging components). I COME FROM a very musical and artistic family and started to play classical piano at a young age. Mother Ruth Burczyk was a pianist and teacher in Grosse Pointe, Michigan for over 50 years and impacted the lives of so many in the area. One tends to forget that until so often running into friends and former students. CAREGIVING for my parents brought me back to the Detroit area where I grew up. HAVE BEEN HERE during the worst economic decade in Michigan history and nationally since The Great Depression but managed to teach design at the college level, earn an MS in historic preservation, and author this book. WARREN can now take its place among the many books in this book series; volume two is under way!

Do you think most people spend a life time discovering their limitations and setting those boundaries, or do they realize limitations and then smash them to bits taking risks and reaping those rewards? Which are you? In other words, do you think people challenge themselves as a rule?
