WHAT STEPS DID YOU TAKE TO GET WHERE YOU ARE NOW?
I've always been an extremely driven person, constantly seeking out opportunities to help people, learn new skills, and experience new things. I grew up in Orange County and went to USC where I studied Communication. After dabbling in internships in the entertainment industry throughout college, I found myself taking a different direction after graduating, working at a full-service commercial real estate development firm in DTLA. After working there for 4 years and doing some freelance gigs on the side for the last year I was there, I decided to take that freelance gig and turn it into a full-time thing and started Ray + Arrow.
WHAT ARE YOU WORKING ON RIGHT NOW?
So many things! As of May 2018 my top priority projects are: strategizing and creating marketing materials for a client who is fundraising and launching a new beauty brand!
WE ARE ALL SLASHIES WITH MULTIPLE SKILLS, WHICH ONE DO YOU WISH YOU COULD DO MORE OFTEN?
WHAT IS FRUSTRATING YOU RIGHT NOW?
I wish there were more hours in the day!
IF YOU COULD HIRE SOMEONE FOR $20/HOUR, WHAT WOULD YOU HAVE THEM DO TO MAKE YOUR DAY EASIER?
Schedule social media posts for the month ahead for all clients.
LET'S BRING OUT THE TIME MACHINE. WHAT DO YOU WISH YOU COULD HAVE TOLD YOURSELF, WHEN, AND WHY?
Be patient & have fun.
IF YOU COULD TALK TO AN EXPERT TO GAIN MORE INSIGHT ON SOMETHING, WHAT WOULD IT BE ABOUT?
Experiential design in physical spaces.
WHAT KIND OF OPPORTUNITIES/PROJECTS ARE YOU LOOKING FOR?
I am looking for contract work with people that want to further develop their personal brands and small businesses.
WHAT IS YOUR IDEAL CLIENT?
I'm big on communication, transparency, and vulnerability. My ideal client/job/collaboration is one that is detailed but has the courage to think outside the box and have fun.
HOW SHOULD SOMEONE APPROACH YOU ABOUT WORKING TOGETHER?
A short email giving me an overview of who you are, what you do, how you found me/why you want to work with me, and a time you're available to chat on the phone. After the initial 10-15 minute phone chat, I typically set up an in-person meeting at a coffee shop - I love coffee/tea meetings!
HOW DO YOU STAY CREATIVE?
Talking to people, reading, looking around -- my curiosity drives my creativity
