Ok, so here's what happened

ALWAYS CREATING

As far back as I can remember, I've had this unique combination of artist & entrepreneur.
 

I would hand paint models for days on end, taking breaks only to sell trading cards on the street. I was eleven.
 

In 2014 I fully expressed this by ditching college to create my first business.

FOUNDING AUTUMN SUMMER CO.

2014

A broke 18 year old, I needed cash. An entrepreneur, I used my uncle's rusty tools in the shed to build some wooden pens to sell online.

These days looked like woodworking all day, website building, hitting the post office at 4:59pm... and the marketing/research grind each night.

GROWING PAINS

2016

Winning a small business competition helped us rent our first space.

But money was tight, and with under $100 in the bank that April, the clock was ticking.

Midway through the month we got a call for a rush order, along with a $2,500 check over night... and we kept on trucking.

BUSINESS EXIT

2020

The years that followed were a blur. A lot of hiring, many Christmas rushes, and a whole lot of learning.

Even though we were growing, I was burning out, and I knew it was time to make a decision.

Over 6 years, I grew a weekend craft show grind to a 10 person, multi-channel, (half million dollar) manufacturing company.

KEEPING UP THE MOMENTUM

2022

After selling Autumn I moved to Phoenix to help other business owners follow a similar path.

Today I help founders grow authentic brands, improve their online presence, and find ease in their businesses.
