Jean has coordinated, compiled, designed, and built History Unlimited, fueled by her life-long love of history. As a child, she gravitated to reading biographies of people in all walks of life, and she also enjoyed the writings of authors such as Laura Ingalls Wilder, who wrote the “Little House” book series (which includes Little House in the Big Woods and Little House on the Prairie). Also a huge fan of classic films, Jean is extremely knowledgeable in regard to actors, actresses, directors, screenwriters, and producers from what she considers the “Golden Era” of filmmaking (the 1940s through the 1960s). Her favorite actor is Paul Newman; her favorite actress is Joan Crawford. Her favorite screenwriter is Stirling Silliphant, who was a major creative force in the classic TV series Route 66 (among many others). Her favorite author is Texas native, Larry McMurtry, who won the Pulitzer Prize for Lonesome Dove. Her favorite classic film is a tie between Paris Blues and Hud; her favorite classic TV shows are I Love Lucy, Rawhide, and The Twilight Zone. Jean is also a self-taught Beatles historian, with over 50 years of continuous enjoyment, love, and study focused on the Fab Four.

After 10 years in the commercial graphics field, Jean switched gears and became a freelance writer in 1977. With writing credits ranging from The Santa Fe Reporter to the Sunday New York Post, she has covered a wide array of assignments (from travel/tourist features to celebrity interviews and articles on entertainers such as Yoko Ono, Jeff Bridges, and Robin Williams. At this time, she also published her first magazine, Junque, focusing on collectibles, another avenue of history that she has enjoyed for most of her life.

While living in San Francisco, California (in close proximity to Silicon Valley), Jean began working with the Apple Macintosh computer in 1984 (shortly after its inception), using the newly developed art of desktop publishing to self-publish two local entertainment magazines. In 1996, she made the transition to online work, developing and designing websites.

Her diverse writing and editing skills, coupled with her intensive graphic arts background, have given her a well-rounded sensibility for website design and development. With 35 years of artistic endeavors behind her, she best describes her most current profession as “Website Content Specialist.” Jean also designed and built the WebWorks Unlimited and Absolute Elsewhere: The Spirit of John Lennon websites (among many others).

Aimee has contributed content to History Unlimited based on her expertise and knowledge of fine art, art history, and literature. She has always been fascinated by history: especially by what people have believed, what they have been compelled to create, and what is was that motivated those creations. She has been glad to have the opportunity to share a little of her love and knowledge of art through History Unlimited. Aimee finds it impossible to name a single favorite artist, but can narrow it down to Chagall, Miro, Klimt, and Gaudi. Like, Jean, she was an avid reader of biographies as a child and teenager. Through the years, she added other nonfiction, Celtic mythology, and the novels of Tom Robbins to her list of favorites. She is also a great lover of documentaries. Enthused by the History Unlimited project, she sometimes finds it difficult to proofread the text, as she finds the content simply too compelling!

Aimee brings a multi-media art background to History Unlimited. As one of the first female recording engineers and producers in New York City, she worked alongside some of the greatest pop and jazz artists of the time. From Earl Hines to Gerry Mulligan and Steely Dan to The Police (and many more), she was privileged to facilitate the artistic process of these great musicians. During this time, she taught audio engineering at the New School, and studied photography at the School of Visual Arts.

In the mid-1980s, Aimee left New York and the music industry behind to pursue her own creative life, attending The Institute of American Indian Arts and finishing up at The San Francisco Art Institute on full merit scholarships. Upon returning to New Mexico, she worked in textile and fiber arts. She was commissioned to create two handmade books for inclusion in prestigious national arts shows, as well as showing her unique textile and mixed-meda work in several galleries.

In 1996, Aimee began working in computer graphics, and her first website design project soon followed. She brings over 25 years of experience in producing art and graphics in a broad spectrum of genres, including LP album art production, periodicals production, illustration, photography, and fine art into her website designs. She has built dozens of websites, including one of her pet projects, Waiting for the Sun: The Spirit of Jim Morrison.
