I'm a California bred and now Brooklyn hustling digital producer, strategist, and writer. In early 2016, I moved to New York City from California when I saw an opportunity to work with the companies, organizations, and people I'd admired from afar. I started on the CreativeMornings HQ team in September 2016. You can read more about what I do day-to-day on the team here. Outside of the office, I sometimes dance and do lots of other things.
Nice humans whose actions speak louder than their words.
How a person made me feel in a short period of time. I'm bad at names though.
A dance move.

We cultivate a more beautiful and meaningful world through craft.
You choose beauty or you choose ugliness. You choose craft or you choose neglect.
The absence of craft is everything ugly in the world. It's indecision, neglect, shortcutting, lack of attention - it's things falling apart.
Beautiful is precision and it's decision. It's attention. It's a sustained effort. It's intention, it's ambition, it's followthrough... It's maintenance. It's everything we care about and actively strive to make better in the world.
Craft is responsible for everything beautiful in the world.
Anything has the potential to have meaning. We just have to state our intention.
It was a transformative experience. I cultivated meaning into something that was formerly mundane.
Craft is the process by which intent is transformed into a meaningful existence.
Can you impart meaning in an activity through intention? When we set a goal, we state an intention. We do everything it takes to follow through with that goal. That is where the meaning is.
How do I diversify my catalogue of meaningful things?
What if meaning was a choice that we make?
How does one cultivate and diversify meaning in their life?
I found success in one area, but it didn't immune me to everything else in life.
While I found success in one area, I'd been working so hard towards this one very narrow goal that everything around me just felt like it was being neglected.
The world gives you nothing until you give it everything.
Maybe I have something here. Maybe this is something that could fulfill this goal that I've had since I was a little kid which was to make a living doing something that i created and something that I loved.
I realized early on how committed the listeners I did have were — they were extremely loyal. It seemed like the show was really connecting with the people that were listening.
I wasn't doing it for anyone, but myself... and in retrospect it really helped. It was very authentic and it was just something I wanted to do.
Cole Cuchna Dissecting the word Craft
Great works of art tell very specific stories.
