Within the years, I learned a lot about myself and my business, business isn’t easy, but it has its wonderful perks. I had struggled for six years to be where I am today, but I also had the opportunity to make beautiful cakes for clients that I never thought I could do a while ago. Read more>>

Always having been a creative little thing (I got my BA degree in Drama), I decided to do my Masters degree in Theater. I flourished under my new found career path and began climbing my next impossible ladder to success: Hollywood. I started acting in student films and then independent films (so far I have 17 of them under my belt) until I met my now writing-producing partner Ian Stokell. Read more>>

I invited local writers — journalists, essayists, poets — Read more>>

En Concordia is that perfect intersection of a forever goal (operating a boutique centered around plants and all the good things and fun people that come with them) and just being really, really over putting it off any longer. Like so many other dreamers and slightly ADD creatives, I kept waiting until the perfect opportunity came up–some magic space in time that would scream “NOW. Read more>>
