Reason for starting
To go behind the scenes with news-worthy features on the lives of local talent and showcase their extraordinary gifts. It is an inside look at the amazing Arts, Culture & Style of the Pittsburgh region. Pittsburgh is becoming a much more stylish city, through it’s innovation, technology, creativity and most important, its people.
How do you define success?
I feel Success is about enhancing who you are, and unlike fashion, it’s personal. Success is all about the individual, Pittsburghers are true originals and everyday I see more and more people celebrating the person they are. Success is when you are the best version of yourself.
My passion and my goal is to air my show on a local news station. I am talking with various local program directors and have been working with my local SBA Pennsylvania Director of Funding. There is a need to showcase our region’s talent and the amazing things happening here. I continue to contribute to style editorials, blog, produce, webcast and share with the world, “that a little bit of Style, isn’t such a bad thing after all”.
What is your top challenge and how have you addressed it?
Working on local funding and sponsorships for the show. I am working with my local SBA Pennsylvania office and local companies in the Pittsburgh area. I am also working with non-profit funding and grants.
Who is your most important role model?
Throughout my whole life, my mom was always my biggest role model. My mother is my true inspiration everyday, she helped nurture me into the woman I have become today with her wisdom, guidance and unconditional love. I know she is with me everyday.
