I’m a lifelong Artist, Designer, Illustrator, and now a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional. My mission is to understand the most pressing financial issues of hardworking, creative people. Over the last 10 years I’ve talked to hundreds of artists and creative entrepreneurs about their money, and learned the nuances of what can be a counter-intuitive business. With this insider perspective, I’ve developed specific tools to build financial stability while supporting my client’s wild aspirations.
