I'm a lifelong Artist, Designer, Illustrator, and now a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional. My mission is to understand the most pressing financial issues of hardworking, creative people. Over the last 10 years I've talked to hundreds of artists and creative entrepreneurs about their money, and learned the nuances of what can be a counter-intuitive business. With this insider perspective, I've developed specific tools to build financial stability while supporting my client's wild aspirations.
Why the bird?
The California Scrub Jay (Aphelocoma Californica) is one of only a few creatures on earth that has the intellect to plan for the future by storing adequate food volume and variety in carefully chosen cache sites. My little Jay is indeed storing plenty of cash for a later date. And if you know anything about my work as an artist, it's obvious why I picked this elegant, hardworking bird to represent me over the squirrel or the chimpanzee.
