    How Designers Noemie Le Coz and Jeremy Elliot Started Little Troop and Make Big Work for Clients Like Billie, TeaTime, and more

    Noemie Le Coz and Jeremy Elliot are the founders and designers of the new Brooklyn based design studio Little Troop. To close out season 3 of the podcast, Noemie and Jeremy welcomed me into their apartment where we chatted about their big move to New York, how they swooned every design studio to land their first jobs, and everything that led to them forming their studio Little Troop. While they are not only partners in their professional careers, Noemie and Jeremy also discuss how laying down some ground rules has strengthened their ability to collaborate as they continue to create amazing work for their clients.

    Designers and DJs, Paul & Barbie Discuss Pursuing Your Passions And How To Create Your Own Community

    Designers and DJs, Paul & Barbie Discuss Pursuing Your Passions And How To Create Your Own Community

    Barbie Bertisch & Paul Raffaele are the designers, DJs, and founders of the New York City based dance music fanzine Love Injection. Although every episode I make for this podcast is special because I get to meet some of my creative heroes, this episode has a special place in my heart. Not only was Paul someone I learned a lot from while I was an intern but Paul and Barbie were part of the reason why I started this podcast in the first place. To watch how they were able to create Love Injection and continue to grow the community in the New York area is something that I truly admire. I am so happy to have them as guests for this season and can't wait to see what they come up with next for Love Injection.

    Writer and Producer Aaron Barksdale Talks About Constantly Expanding Your Skillset Even If It Makes You Uncomfortable

    Writer and Producer Aaron Barksdale Talks About Constantly Expanding Your Skillset Even If It Makes You Uncomfortable

    Aaron Barksdale is a writer, producer, and previously a teacher in Brooklyn, New York. Aaron and I met while working at Vice where he was doing something totally different than what he is doing now for his full-time job. While working together I would come to learn that Aaron is not afraid to challenge himself and take on new opportunities. Aaron was a previously a teacher before deciding to enter the media industry as a writer. He wrote for companies like Refinery29, HuffPost, Blavity and more before making his way to Vice Media Group. While at Vice he has been able to expand his skillset as a writer and also a producer working on a variety of video series for the company. Aaron's willingness to learn and humble attitude is something I admire and I am so glad to have him as a guest for this season of the podcast.

    Creative Director, Illustrator, and Artist Kevin Lyons Revisits His Past and How His Monster Doodles Became Stars

    Kevin Lyons is a creative director, illustrator, and artist known for his brilliant creativity and his infamous monsters that you may have seen on your favorite popsicle packaging at your local supermarket. Having Kevin join me as a guest was and has been an absolute highlight for the podcast and for me personally. I grew up observing and admiring Kevin's work ad to be able to speak with him about his career and experience was such a tremendous pleasure and learning opportunity.

    Freelance Photographer Aundre Larrow on Navigating A Freelance Career and The Lesson Learned Along The Way

    Freelance Photographer Aundre Larrow on Navigating A Freelance Career and The Lesson Learned Along The Way

    Aundre Larrow is a freelance photographer and creative currently based in Brooklyn, New York. I first learned about Aundre's work when I interview Jeremy Perez-Cruz for the podcast. I immediately fell in love with Aundre's photograph and knew I had to hear his story. His work captures the raw emotion and joy of everyday people. Aundre was also a participant in the Adobe Creative Residency where he spent an entire working and honing his skills as a photographer.

    Freelance Illustrator Louisa Cannell on Taking 1 Step Backwards To Take 3 Steps Forward

    Freelance Illustrator Louisa Cannell on Taking 1 Step Backwards To Take 3 Steps Forward

    Louisa Cannell is a freelance illustrator working and living in Brooklyn. This episode was very special for me because I when I met Louisa she was in a completely different role from what she is doing now. Louisa and I both worked at Viceland and at the time Louisa was a coordination assistant. At that time she had only done a few illustrations here and there from previous internships and also outside of work. Louisa decided to one day apply for an internship at Refinery29, leaving her full-time job. Since then she has been able to work with a ton of different brands. I am super excited to release this episode and I hope you enjoy it!
