I’ve been a life-long music lover and album collector. I was the kind of kid who stayed up late listening to my favorite albums, obsessing over lyrics and the details of the lives of my favorite musicians. In high school, I learned to play the drums (eventually joining a punk rock band) and constantly went to shows around Atlanta, especially in the punk and ska scene. I would make flyers for and help promote my favorite bands anytime they had shows. Read more>>

I started my business back in January of 2019 on the 7th. I started this business because I have the desire of becoming a cosmetologist in the near future. I currently am a dual-enrolled student completing my Cosmetology diploma at Lanier Technical College along with attending Denmark High School in Alpharetta, GA. Hair is something I love so I asked myself why not just start a small hustle, and that’s just what I did. Read more>>

When I moved to Atlanta in May 2018 (through God’s Direction), I was in a rut and wasn’t sure if I was supposed to be here. I prayed that day and listened to a sermon that told me if I want something, I have to plant it. I took that to mean volunteer in a studio to learn and gain experience and maybe even network. I started working at a studio working behind the scenes of a popular talk show called “Talk Show Divas. Read more>>

Over the years, this passion has grown to be something that I want to have a career in. Along with this my interest in interior design has sparked. At the beginning of 2019, I decided to create an Instagram account so that I could share my passion for architecture and interior design with others who are just as passionate as I am. I just wanted another way to express myself and things that I enjoyed. Read more>>

I am a former athlete (swimmer) so working out and being healthy was always super important to me. When I was out of college, I started to really hit a rough patch. I was so lost with myself and the relationships I had with people around me were solely based on partying and how late we could stay out. I remember looking at myself in the mirror one morning and I was the heaviest and saddest I’d ever been. Read more>>

My love for music started when I was a three-year-old kid banging on my parent’s pots and pans in the living room with spoons. Despite nobody in my immediate family having the ability to play music, my parents quickly realized that, though I was extremely annoying with all of the noise I was creating, I was actually holding a beat. Read more>>

Art has always been part of my life. Even as a kid, I remember collecting different pictures from various magazines, newspapers and greeting cards and then trying to recreate a new artwork in my own style.
