Too many profit at the expense of others and our planet. I don’t want any part of that.
Recently I began taking inventory of my life, recognizing the shifts I could make to lessen my personal consumption and impact. Since we spend a quarter of our lives working, that was certainly an area demanding attention. So I left retail and began freelancing for small businesses whose higher purpose transcends profit. In this way I can support too-swamped entrepreneurs by building their websites and brands, allowing them to focus on the important work at hand. At the same time, I get to nurture my own entrepreneurial spirit while being creative and building truly meaningful relationships throughout my community.
IN A NUTSHELL: I was born & raised in the Bronx, studied Communications & Studio Art at NYU, have ventured to 8 different countries, am engaged to one hunky dream of a man, and bake my own wild fermented sourdough bread- the old fashioned way. I'm also very passionate about marketing and design, especially design.
I consider the details without losing sight of the big picture. I strive to inform, delight and inspire by balancing content with design. I aim to see around corners while staying focused on the moment. I'm self directed but have over a decade of experience successfully working with teams. And while I've surely got bills to pay, I know it's my social responsibility to be selective about where I put my energy.
That said, if you are an authentic, caring, transparent company or individual working to empower your customers, employees and community, I'd love to collaborate! We don’t live in a vacuum, so why should our work, right?
