WHAT DO YOU DO?

I am an Independent Contractor. I have experience working within many different industries in many different roles.

I am your go-to, get shit done, kind of girl.

 

WHAT STEPS DID YOU TAKE TO GET TO WHERE YOU ARE NOW?

Never accepting the easy route, the same old desk job or a generic way of thought. I'm constantly searching and expanding my mind.

 

FOR OTHER PEOPLE IN YOUR FIELD, WHAT DO THEY USUALLY LACK?

Always be kind and happy to say "Good morning"

 

WHAT ARE YOU WORKING ON RIGHT NOW?

I am looking for anything that I can be apart of where I am required to take on responsibilities with the ability to be constantly learning.

 

WHAT'S YOUR STYLE/PERSPECTIVE/TASTE? DO YOU HAVE A PROJECT THAT REPRESENTS THIS? 

My style/perspective/taste is so hard to describe. In a brief summary: it is when everything just works and you get that feeling of how pleasing it is to look at or read and you may even say "Yes" to yourself and screen shot it so you always have it as a reference moving forward. It's all about the curation of the entire piece. My style is visual love. It is about the mix and match before you get it just right.

 

WE ARE ALL SLASHIES WITH MULTIPLE SKILLS, WHICH ONE DO YOU WISH YOU COULD DO MORE OFTEN?

I truly love all aspects of business, all of it and I have so much experience in various roles within different industries. However, I wish I could find a company or brand where I can be a curator of all things visual, content, planning, etc. I love the process of brainstorming, laying things out and putting things together and I love the evolution of completing that process then starting fresh again.

 

WHAT IS FRUSTRATING YOU RIGHT NOW?

None, just conquer it and check it off.

 

IF YOU COULD HIRE SOMEONE FOR $20/HR, WHAT WOULD YOU HAVE THEM DO TO MAKE YOUR DAY EASIER?

Plan cool photoshoots for my Instagram

 

LET'S BRING OUT THE TIME MACHINE. WHAT DO YOU WISH YOU COULD HAVE TOLD YOURSELF, WHEN, AND WHY?

I remember being  six years old so vividly and it was the best time of my life. It was the early 90's, pre-internet years and my imagination was so pure with constant momentum. There are days now where I think about being that age when I need to be reminded of where my creativity comes from without any digital-age noise

 

IF YOU COULD TALK TO AN EXPERT TO GAIN MORE INSIGHT ON SOMETHING, WHAT WOULD IT BE ABOUT?

Small business launch and growth

 

WHAT KIND OF OPPORTUNITIES/PROJECTS ARE YOU LOOKING FOR?

I am looking for an opportunity to learn as well as challenge my current skills and to add new skills to my set.

 

DESCRIBE YOUR IDEAL JOB/CLIENT/COLLABORATION.

Ideal client/collaboration is one where creative direction in myself is trusted, an outline of any specifics that the client would like to see and a speak-easy environment where passionate ideas and inspiration is shared.

 

WHAT IS YOUR HOURLY RATE, RETAINER, OR SALARY RANGE? 

This would truly depend on the project itself and the timeline.

 

HOW SHOULD SOMEONE APPROACH YOU ABOUT WORKING TOGETHER?

Budget, scope of work, a color palette (if applicable), timeline.
