1. Tell us a little bit about your business and what you do.
I am a creative director merging experience in entertainment, fashion, tech and the arts to offer customized marketing plans for these fields. Services ranging from go-to market plans, public relations, social media mapping to image consulting.
2. What made you aspire to be an entrepreneur?
The terms entrepreneurship, philanthropy, and legacy all spoke to me in my early studies. From what I recall, I drew parallels between the three and noticed that most revered men in history embodied the three. It was their gumption that pushed me to find my own path and entrepreneurs
inspired me to peruse finding my form of making an impact, giving back, and leaving my mark.
Logistically, while applying for colleges I landed at the liberally progressive SFSU where it happens that there was a test pilot program for “Entrepreneurial Studies”
3. What is the one thing you wish you had known before starting your own business?
Not everyone is rooting for you to succeed some will come to sabotage you out of their despair. However, this despair was never mine to internalize. Point do the story, best to take all with a grain of salt and yourself and your vision!
4. What has been the most successful avenue for building and growing your brand/business?
The most successful avenue has been self-promotion, keeping myself in front of my peers by consistently working on different creative projects and finding leads through networking whether that be in person or virtually – stay engaged with your audience. If you have questions how, follow Sakura’s Founder Andrea Romero and look at her stories.
5. What are the aspects of your business that you enjoy the most?
Communicating ideas, building people up, and in turn enjoying where it takes me and being excited about finding new avenues to create.
6. What do you love doing in your free time to refuel and have fun?
I very much enjoy being in nature hiking, Class-pass, my stories on the now various streaming services, and viewing art.
