The details are what I notice. Seeing a fresh, innovative design concept come to life is always inspiring. Yet I believe it’s the attention to the fine points of every project that delivers a fully-polished product to a client.

Following high school, Amy moved to New York City to pursue a career as a ballerina with a well-known ballet company. Like all those in her profession, Amy was completely consumed with dance and grew up in a home with a suffocating ex-ballerina mother. Amy’s big break came when her director opted to move Amy into the featured role in Swan Lake, replacing Russian prima ballerina, Tatyana Svetlana Yana Rozalina Polina Bagrov. Amy’s new fame came with much torment and jealousy from rival dancers and led to what Amy refers to as her “dark days.” Emotionally spent, Amy retired from dancing and returned to her roots in central Ohio and began pursuing a career in the graphic arts. Not wanting anything more to do with dance, Amy married a decent man named Fred, who has no dancing rhythm what-so-ever.

Amy’s dance career was adapted into the acclaimed 2010 Hollywood film, Black Swan.


After contemplating a career change in motorcross, Amy decided to simply spend her free time as a Ducatista.
