Profession/What do you do?
What does that mean, exactly?
I've got this problem to solve, this creative team, these clients, this timeline, this much money, and these unanswered questions and assumptions. I then ask myself, what creative processes and ideas are best to move this project forward and make sure it comes to life within the guidelines we've all co-created? Lots of ideas, energies, and barriers will surely come up, but my job is to balance the big-picture thinking with the day to day details. Curiosity is also a great superpower to tap into, understanding or learning what everyone's working on and how to help them do their most creative work.
The work I've created helps humanize organizations and brands, connecting them more meaningfully to a desired group of people by manifesting a beautiful piece of work, whether that's a physical experience, digital product, or interesting combination of the two.
What are you passionate about?
Revealing the wisdom and humanness in all moments and conversations.
Social experiments and gatherings fueled by co-creation.
Solving the right problems.
And most recently: traveling one-way to become a woman of the world.
Do you have a mantra?
Nam Myoho Renge Kyo, which in short teaches us that everyone possesses the experience of enlightenment; it's just a matter of tapping in and activating that power every day.
Also, this one always sticks around (from Eckhart Tolle's "New Earth"): "Life will give you whatever experience is most helpful for the evolution of your consciousness. How do you know this is the experience you need? Because this is the experience you are having at this moment."
What is your favorite health go-to?

Body: ‘The Truth’: soft-boiled egg (6 minutes) with smoked fish spread. I've always had a "fear of not being full enough" but it truly is the perfect dose of protein to get your brain and day started right. Recipe courtesy of my amazing partner in crime, Wylie.
What one or few thing(s) have most improved your quality of life?
Showing up for myself, or the art of the practice. Like any physical exercise, showing up is a muscle that can be flexed through good habits, be it creative, spiritual or both.
What matters most to you these days?
Creating good karma every day, no matter how that manifests. These days, I've become even more passionate about making lots of connections to help people expand their tribes.
In October, I'll be taking the trip of my dreams so I've also got the process of minimizing and discarding on my mind. This has transcended the physical into the realms of emotional/psychological, as a cleansing and purifying ritual. It all comes down to "how can I minimize what I have to make space for what really matters (and sparks joy)." Give this one a read, it's quick and transformative: The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up.
What have you learned recently that you’d like to apply to your life?
Helping someone make a meaningful connection can be the greatest gift.
What do you know that you wish more people did as well?
You always have all the answers, just tune in.
What do you wish you knew more about?
How does the world work?
How can we make it work better and solve real (not just perceived) problems?
Do I want to influence perception of reality OR reality itself?
Who should we profile next and what should we ask them?
