Meet the Collective

Throughout my career (past & present) and all my travels, I have met so many amazing and inspiring entrepreneurs; many of which are fellow creatives, experts within their respective disciplines and niches (note: see blog article, Invitation: Creative Collective, for complete story + details).

Valuing the power of networking — and my role as a bridge between those who have a need and those with the resources & capabilities to fulfill it — I am pleased to introduce and give props to the following professionals. I have either personally collaborated on projects with them and/or I truly respect & admire their work and passion:
