Adrea has always enjoyed writing and illustrating and at the encouragement of friends and family has finally decided to just go for it. Fingers crossed.
Her published works include LET'S PUT ON A SHOW!, a theatrical primer for kids, and a series of theatre-based DVDs with Meriwether Publishing, the basis for numerous successful workshops. As a certified personal trainer and group fitness instructor she has written multiple articles and created specialty programming (BABYCISE, TODDLERCISE, READERCISE, KIDZ, YOGABET, WATERBABIES, and adaptive fitness variations), which coupled with her child-develop experience through her work with Gymboree, combined active learning with exercise which made for accessibility through a variety of avenues for varying populations.
Adrea's illustrative work can be viewed at her website AN ALRIGINAL at cafepress.com/an_alriginal and is an off-shoot of her work in brand-creation and development exampled in her earliest logo design for the Rancho Bernardo Soccer Club in the late seventies.
Her day job finds her an Internationally experienced entertainment and operations consultant specializing in working with small parks and attractions to develop a high-profile customer experience with an emphasis on cost-effectiveness. Projects in India, Taiwan, Malaysia, Germany, France, Netherlands, Austria, Japan, and United States in project development, show creation, training programs (entertainment/customer service), hospitality, retail, merchandising, branding, seminars, child-based programming and related areas.
Otherwise, she does her best to try and stay out of trouble. "Try" being the key word.
