Let me know- how did we meet A) Instagram; B) we met in real life; C) You’re a client; D) You hope to become a client one day; E) I floated by you on a unicorn float one day and we’ve been BFFs ever since.
🦄 😂
Before you answer, here’s a few things you might not know about me: Grand Budapest Hotel is the movie I have on repeat (or just about any Wes Anderson flick, for that matter), I work best in the morning hours and then from about 3:30- 6:30 PM (random, I know), and if I could only eat one thing for the rest of my life I choose green curry.
🍲
Your turn- how do we know each other and what’s something I might not know about you already...Go!

It’s National Ice Cream Day, and since it's been a bajillion degrees in Los Angeles for the past week, I fully plan on celebrating! Besides, I've yet to whip up a batch of the sugar-free keto recipe I adapted from the Jenni's ice cream base recipe. It's super yums!

Over the years, I’ve developed a super power- I can see what makes others special. I understand what aspects of their story they should highlight in order to create deep resonance with their audience, and then I take that understanding and help them turn it into visual stories- A place where others can connect and fall in love with them.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I love this gift. It means I get to see the very best in someone even if they can’t see it in themselves.

Today, I’m thinking of all my mentors through the years. They inspire me to keep pushing forward because I’m doing what I love and there’s a piece of me that knows I wouldn’t be the brand building visual storyteller I am today without their belief in me. In their own way, every single one taught me that it was ok to follow my creative curiosity whichever direction it led- even if it didn’t completely make sense at the time. And I want to show them that their encouragement and support was worth it.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Who inspires you to keep pushing forward?

As a child, I used to dream of becoming an architect or a fashion designer. (Clearly, I’ve always had my sights set on a creative career path.) Instead of reimagining buildings or crafting frocks everyday though, I became a graphic designer, and then a creative director. Now, I call myself a visual storyteller, and I’m honored that I get to inspire, guide and support people as they create their dream brands. ⚡️⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Sometimes, I have to stop and take a second to thank myself (yep, myself!) for doing something I love so that others can spend more time doing what THEY love. It’s a win/win.

What can you thank yourself for today?

Hai!! 👋 I’m planning out some blog posts- sharing what I know about visual storytelling and I’d love to know...If you could learn anything from me (anything at all) what would it be? (I’m all ears!)

There’s nothing quite like a cool drink on a hot day, and on a sunny stunner like this, I’m indulging in a favorite summer beverage: Homemade ginger mint tea. I fell in love with fresh ginger tea when I took some Ayurveda workshops a few years back. That version was hot with tumeric & spices- but I simply had to have a crisp, refreshing take once the temps started rising. Making it with fresh mint from my garden (that I somehow miraculously keep alive in this CA heat!) makes it even more special.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And you? What keeps you going during a heat wave??

What would you tell yourself if you had the chance to go back 10 years? In 2008, my marriage was falling apart. My job had become my everything- career + social life all rolled into one because let’s face it, that’s what happens when you spend so much time at work you literally have zero to give to anything/ anybody else in your life. Health/wellness, or any sort of balance in life was not only non-existent, it was impossible to imagine.
✨⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Eventually, the marriage ended, I let go of most of my possessions to move into an apartment that was considerably smaller than my previous home and got laid off from the job that was 100% my identity. ✨⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
If I had a chance to go and whisper in my ear, I would say “Hold on. Things are about to get bumpy. But it’s TOTALLY ok. YOU’RE going to be totally ok. In fact, way, way better than ok. You’re about to understand what true freedom looks like. You’re about to find out what’s underneath it all and who you really are + what you really want out of life. Don’t be afraid of the pain and heartache- going through it will actually show you who you really are. You’ll be amazed at how quickly things can change.”
✨⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In a blink of an eye, I met the love of my life, moved halfway across the country, transformed my physical, emotional & spiritual well-being, and embarked on a career path of freelancing/ solopreneurship that flipped everything I previously believed about “having a job.” ✨⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And you know what? I'd do it all over again and wouldn’t change a darn thing. What would you say to your younger self??

Someone recently told me that I helped them see things in a different, more beautiful way. This meant the world to me because I’ve spent most of my life finding beauty in unexpected places while also trying to create and surround myself with as much of it as possible.
🌸⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I feel like sometimes “beauty” gets a bad rap. Mostly because it can sometimes feel frivolous. Personally, I think it’s TRANSFORMATIVE. The smallest touches can turn the ordinary into extraordinary. Beauty creates connection and common language for people. It’s a tool to attract (and in some cases, repel) others.
✨⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
So yeah. I think it’s pretty cool. It could be one of the nicest compliments I’ve ever received.
💖⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What’s the nicest thing somebody’s said to you lately?

Can I take a second to introduce myself? Many of you know me, but today I want to share three things you might not know...
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
1) My most embarrassing moment as a kid was when my dad (yes, dad- you read that right) took me shopping for my first ever training bra. My Mom WAY miscalculated how that one could go sideways when she put it on the honey-do list. My dad literally has no shame- which is actually endearing. Just not so much at that specific moment in time.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
2) I love my job so much but the best part for me is that there is no end to the growth I can achieve- I can always learn more, hone my skills and become better and better at what I do.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
3) Most people would describe me as positive, but those closest to me would also add snarky (which is a nice balance, I suppose!)
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
How would your friends describe you? I’d love to get to know you better.
