"You could say that I am a Jane of all trades. From concocting potions, to training people from the wellness industry and doing a little bit of writing and personality development seminars to would-be moms and career women back in Asia. I found I was spreading myself too thinly over all of my chosen endeavors so early in 2004, I finally gave some allegiance to myself, my life and my daughter. I settled down and relocated to the United States after years of service to others in Asia. I was very fortunate to tie the knot with John, a Silicon Valley Maverick who helped empower me and so I was instantly introduced to the world of gears and gadgetry. I then immersed myself with digital art, graphic layout, web design and video editing. I have always been fascinated with film and photography so it was like second nature for me to be sucked in to the whole techie stuff. This became very beneficial for me since I also looked for ways to improve my marketing and promotion skills.

After a few months, I started to do freelance work by creating marketing materials and websites for quite a number of people/clients in my area. I was really overwhelmed with all the cool things that was readily available for me however this did not turn me into a techie geekazoid (though most of my friends insist that I am!). Although I had to say goodbye to the glamorous life back home and evolve into a PTA soccer mom, the joy I get from spending time with my daughter and seeing her content, happy and confident in school is priceless. I wouldn't exchange it for anything in the world. I am grateful for all the blessings bestowed upon me and I only wish for everyone to be as fortunate as I am. I may not be financially wealthy but I'd like to believe that I possess the greatest treasures in the world. A loving and devoted husband, a daughter that would make any parent proud, a fourth chance in life and a heavenly blessing named John Folsom Cloutman IV "
