Personal Organizer/Personal Producer
Los Angeles, CA
WHAT DO YOU DO?
An example of this would be reorganizing an office and/or guiding business owners and individuals with goal based solutions (business therapy).
WHAT STEPS DID YOU TAKE TO GET WHERE YOU ARE NOW?
I am starting to think that this whole Personal Production thing started from a very young age. My father was a business owner and my mother was a wacky ceramicist. I grew up with a love for socialization, culture and art but always had my fathers niche for business. Personal Production has allowed me to combine all of these wonderful things into one great career -- being a natural born organizer doesn't hurt either ;)
FOR OTHER PEOPLE IN YOUR FIELD, WHAT DO THEY USUALLY LACK?
To be honest, I don't know any other Personal Producers out there. I came up with the title term one day after meeting with a client where, somehow, rearranging her office turned into sorting through her late mother's wardrobe. So, although I've never heard of a Personal Producer until myself, I guess you could say that I'm that personal organizer/creative strategist/business (and emotional!) therapist you've always been looking for but never knew.
WHAT ARE YOU WORKING ON RIGHT NOW?
I currently work with varying clients on business growth and keeping things together (both mentally and physically). I work as a Studio Manager for local artists in the Los Angeles area as well as some freelance work on the more administrative side of things for local businesses. Additionally, I am looking into becoming a licensed Clinical Psychologist to expand my credentials in my love of helping others.
WHAT'S YOUR STYLE/PERSPECTIVE/TASTE?
My style is to grow and expand with the people I meet. I am always looking for new perspectives and love to brainstorm creatively with my clients to suit their comfort levels while removing stagnant patterns and/or energies from their environments.
WE ARE ALL SLASHIES WITH MULTIPLE SKILLS, WHICH ONE DO YOU WISH YOU COULD DO MORE OFTEN?
Although I majored in Photography at CalArts, I'm very interested in branching out more into the Social Work world. Creativity keeps culture alive but my goal is to merge my love of helping people with my love of our ever-changing creative world.
WHAT IS FRUSTRATING YOU RIGHT NOW?
The post-grad life! The amount of hard-working, talented young grads I'm surrounded by that struggle to keep a roof over their head is completely bonkers! It is a very defeating time for young artists right now and it is a total travesty to witness such talent go to waste.
IF YOU COULD HIRE SOMEONE FOR $20/HOUR, WHAT WOULD YOU HAVE THEM DO TO MAKE YOUR DAY EASIER?
Clean my bathroom. Nothing worse than a dirty bathroom. Nothing worse than cleaning your OWN dirty bathroom. Oy... yuck...
LET'S BRING OUT THE TIME MACHINE. WHAT DO YOU WISH YOU COULD HAVE TOLD YOURSELF, WHEN, AND WHY?
Nothing! I truly believe that difficulties come to help us learn and grow as individuals. Life is hard but regret is worse.
IF YOU COULD TALK TO AN EXPERT TO GAIN MORE INSIGHT ON SOMETHING, WHAT WOULD IT BE ABOUT?
Probably a Color Psychologist. I am very interested in the way that the aesthetics of our environments affect our moods and color surrounds us everywhere!
WHAT KIND OF OPPORTUNITIES/PROJECTS ARE YOU LOOKING FOR?
I am looking for clients that are ready to grow and ready get their lives in order. I am interested in working with people from all different backgrounds and can't wait to see what comes next.
WHAT IS YOUR IDEAL CLIENT?
People that are interested in working with me as a team. I believe that team work and collaboration are the driving forces behind progress.
WHAT IS YOUR RATE?
Typically I charge $25/hr but I offer a free 1 hour consultation for anyone interested. During this time, prices become flexible depending on the time needed and/or the task at hand.
HOW SHOULD SOMEONE APPROACH YOU ABOUT WORKING TOGETHER?
Email! Call! Ring the doorbell! We're all friends here!
HOW DO YOU STAY CREATIVE?
Socialize. Collaborate. Laugh.
