A bit about me

I'm a firm believer in making the most out of life. Our time on earth is so precious that we shouldn't regret the decisions we make. Choose a career or project that brings you happiness.

Spend time with people who matter the most to you. Don't wait until tomorrow to make a change. Do it today because tomorrow is never promised. 

Why I founded a creative production agency - Ver Studios

I spent four years working in TV production for ABC News in their Los Angeles bureau. I learned the ins and outs of the television business but wasn't sure it was something I could see myself doing long term. The news cycle is 24/7, fast-paced, and never ends. 

Life's too short

When my brother-in-law passed away suddenly, my outlook completely changed. He was young, and he died one month after being diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. In that heartbreaking moment, I truly understood the meaning of the phrase "life is short." I wasn't completely happy with my career choice, and I wanted to live a life without regrets. 

In 2018, my fiancé and I were hanging out at a friend's house and our conversation took an interesting turn as we talked about the future. Our friend encouraged me to launch a creative agency. On the drive back home, I couldn't stop thinking about it.

Love of storytelling

I loved the storytelling aspect of news but didn't like the doom and gloom of news. A creative agency represented a perfect happy medium. I researched how to start a business and set up everything on my own. Starting my own business has been an incredible journey, and I am constantly learning and pushing myself.

Celebrate Women's Day every day.

International Women's Day is this Sunday, March 8th, and it's a date of historical and cultural importance. My aspiration is to create a platform, which can connect and inspire a community of women who are in the mode of self-discovery and need help finding their true calling. It's so important to show up for one another.
