“I am fortunate to have a career that I love. I’m a southern transplant who moved to New York City to become a designer and start my own business. More than a decade later, I am thrilled to say that I have more than realized those dreams by launching and selling a series of successful creative startups.
Today, as I look towards the future, I see a movement in our society that mixes personal meaning, compassion, community action, and capitalism. I strive to be a part of this philosophy, I hope the products featured here will help inspire, motivate, and provide viewers with valuable resources that will compliment and advance their own green missions. I believe everyone’s actions can make a difference.”
