I’ve been told more than once that I’ve lived “many lives” in my career. But that’s not tremendously hard when you’ve worked since you were 13.

I assure you, there are always at least 3 common threads in all that I do.  My life thus far can be easily measured in spurts of professional growth:  

 The commercial real estate career I forged after 9/11 that sent me scampering from the Journalism degree I had planned since idolizing April O’Neil slay in the original TMNT.

The Etsy born-and-raised vegan cosmetic company that defined my mid-twenties and sent me traipsing around the country on the alternacraft show circuit for the next 6 years. 

Toe-dipping into the world of fine wines and boutique spirits while working towards a sommelier status (and then deciding I was content with just doing the marketing around said wine and spirits).

Organizing, marketing, and promoting large-scale community arts and cultural events in and around Jersey City, New Jersey over the last 10 years.

Developing Creative Enabler to bridge the gap between out-of-reach and out-of-touch business consultants and the creative professionals that need viable infrastructure and marketing strategy.

Diving into civil servant life with the City of Jersey City since 2014, first in Program Development in the Office of Cultural Affairs and then being named Creative Director in the Department of Business Administration, Division of Communications.
