All you need are three main pillars to a fulfilling artistic lifestyle and career:

❤ Energy-infused strategy (the root) → A huge factor in building a creative career that lasts. Organizational, processes, tools, leveraging your skills, and encapsulating an energetic and intentional approach to build a creative career that pays you back.

❤ Self-love (the stars) → The perfect balance to your rooting. The energetic and health-related rituals, routines, and nourishment that continually fulfills your body and mind so you can get and stay inspired.

❤ An inspiring space to cultivate (the flow) → The environment you create for yourself, both physically and relationally. This is the way you design your space, the places you spend time in, and the relationships and people you attract.

It's possible to have an abundant, beautiful artistic career.

I’ve turned to the inspiration of many content creators and influencers who believe in sustainability, holistic lifestyles, manifestation, and high vibrational energy to bring their fullest dreams to life. Some of my favorites include:

My Lifestyle Influences

Who inspired me to pursue freelancing full-time and be both professional and creative in the way I approach my business.

Her systems-oriented guidance has helped me with business in music, too, and eventually,  I worked for her!

Deya,
DBM Bootcamp

A passionate multi-hyphenate who looks just as fondly at her work as an actor as she does encouraging a plant-based, holistic lifestyle.

I adore Daniella’s warm, inviting energy and being subscribed to her Digest, too! And of course, her big sister energy that brings me nostalgia from her Trina Vega days.

I came across the art of wabi-sabi when I accidentally broke one of my favorite thrifted vases. I’d gotten it from Habitat for Humanity Restore for about $5, and though I wasn’t skilled enough to do it myself at the time, I loved the concept of a design style specifically aimed at imperfection. Now, as […]

If you’re like me, being a full-time artist was never an “if,” but a “when.” You always knew that you wanted to cast spells and create art for your career, but (like me, and like all of us) struggled to figure out the “how.” Manifestation is like planting a seed for your dreams and watching […]

Then, I went to The William Esper Studio, where Nancy Mayans said words that I always thought of but never had the words for. I realized they embodied my creative process in every facet of performance. A purpose, a soul’s calling...

My Creative Process

Performing is a collective prayer, bringing people together to life the vibration of the room as a whole.

Art is an artist’s love language and most powerful act of service.

Performing helps others heal by reminding them how to feel.
