Helping creative professionals turn their talent and passion into successful businesses.

Educating creatives on business is more than just sticking them in a business classroom. While all businesses share certain needs, creative businesses face their own unique challenges and creative's are looking for answers to their problems.

Whether in an academic classroom, a workshop, or online, I work to bring those challenges to life and to provide real solutions to the problems that you face running a business driven by your creative efforts.

Coaching

I’ve helped dozens of artists, makers, and other creative professionals build businesses that derive from their creative passions.

I focus on helping you determine your unique value, how to identify your ideal customer, and how to tell your story in a way that resonates with those customers.

If you're ready to turn your creative passion into a business, contact me and we can discuss your needs. 

Advocacy & Community

I work closely with a number of organizations that support creatives and their business endeavors. These collaborative efforts help us to provide the resources that strengthen the individuals who are the backbone of our creative economy.
