Trade Muse delivers professional problem solving bent on expediting community growth through consensus and mutual aid.

I begin with a no cost, collaborative brainstorming session. We will identify your goals, obstacles, and assets in your support system. This assessment is yours to keep, no strings attached.

If we decide to continue working together, my time is available in the following ways:

  1. Fluid levels of assistance to artists and professionals for one time or ongoing projects in exchange for tips, trades, and any teaching offered in the course of our collaboration  

  2. On a fee based, sliding scale to individuals and families seeking home and personal services on an as needed basis

Striving for sustainability, equity, inclusion, & responsible growth for all.

Personal & Production Assistance

I have had the opportunity to work in the studio, on job sites, and at events with some incredible artists including: @cooperstrattondesigns, @lori.felix, @madilynnnelson, @karikirtland, @larascotton, @soyoon666, @mat.heavy, and more!

I strive to bring a balance and organization to all your creative pursuits, relieving the stress of an ongoing to-do list.

Management & Consulting Services

I have worked overseeing sandwich shops, retail stores, and tattoo studios, as well as directly with private clients in New Orleans, LA and New York City. I created custom training manuals, exposure control plans, and established shop procedures, for Acqua Santa. I have also created FAQ and Contact Pages for two client websites: 1 * 2

Identifying and supporting the skills of those you work with is the foundation for job satisfaction and growth.

Craft & Community Involvement

I have offered my time leading a sewing class at Lakeview Shepherd Center, assisting with puppet assembly for the Hillsborough Arts Council Handmade Parade, exchanging cleaning for class time at a yoga studio, and participating in a TimeBank.

I grew up making Mardi Gras costumes with my friends, sourcing inspiration from my dad in the wood shop, and exploring all things DIY with my mom/Girl Scout Troop Leader!

Packing & Shipping

My mentor and packing muse is Heidi of Parcels & Post in New Orleans, LA. I have also managed the shipment of handmade ceramic dinnerware for Jono Pandolfi, packed items for clients through EBTH and private clients, and packed sold pieces for @artforabortion.

I take care to create the best packing and shipping solutions for all items.

Event Production & Paint

I cut my teeth in the paint departments for the House of Blues and Solomon Group in New Orleans, LA creating display pieces and art installations for venues and events. I have assisted with builds for Tales of the Cocktails through Times Three Design.

I also enjoy working with artist and individuals at pop ups, markets, and DIY events!

Food, Retail, & Hospitality

I have had the opportunity to assist tradespeople across the country: arranging flowers in Hawaii, retail sales @hippiegypsynola, housekeeping at Sierra Nevada House, interim inn-keeping @sullymansion, and working as a docent/artist assistant @daredeviltattoo!

Dish washing and food prep, catering service, and month-long outdoor cooking jobs for seasonal workers have prepared me to accommodate menus and venues of all kinds with an eye for conservation & waste.
