Portia Jackson

I got started in digital marketing back in 2013 when I started a podcast for working moms while I was still working as a rocket scientist during the day. I wanted to get my message out to as many people as possible and in the process of doing so I created a very successful online business. Read more>>

James Razzall

Growing up in London in the ‘70’s and ‘80’s, my perception of America was formed from TV shows and movies. It seemed so glamorous and exciting. Even the resolution of the television images gave it a softer look in contrast to the greyness of the UK back then. Read more>>

Kupah James

A happy young boy who enjoyed taking things apart and putting them back together (says baby sis, Natasha), I was a pleasant child. Unfortunately outside of the wonder I saw in the world, I had many lessons to learn and the world felt it necessary to teach me painfully and often. Read more>>

Catherine Tirr

Sarah Mcdaniel

After spending over 15 years in the beauty industry in marketing roles on both coasts, I started to slowly work on my own concept (very slowly!). I kept chipping away at small bits in terms of product development and branding, testing and tweaking and evolving. Read more>>

Patricia Rhee

I grew up in Maryland, the daughter of Korean immigrants—my mother was a watercolor painter and my dad was an orthopedic surgeon. I think I became an architect because I loved making things in art class, and I also had an inborn desire to cut things since my dad was a surgeon… this is probably also why I LOVE model making!

Having both finished up playing careers abroad, we met playing in the local men’s leagues here. Both of us grew up engulfed in the American soccer system, and had the ability to work and play soccer abroad. Read more>>

Angie Shyr

LaLaLove began when I had just finished recording my 1st album demo circa 2013. The idea was like a lightning strike that came fully loaded with the name, image and concept. During that special time when you’re happily locked away in a studio, you become a festering laboratory of musical ideas spilling over. Read more>>

Karen Wilson

When I was nine years old, I declared that I was going to be a doctor, but by the time I was completing my undergraduate degree, my interest had shifted to an interest in the brain and behavior. To my delight, I found that that there was a subspecialty in psychology – neuropsychology. Read more>>

Skot Carruth

The best stories are the unintended ones. A story that unfolds exactly as planned – if it ever does – strikes me as incredible boring, dry, and void of any serendipity or magical “meant to be” moments. Who would want to go through life like that? When others look at where I am today, they might easily surmise that it’s come as a result of careful planning, hard work, and maybe a good dose of luck. Read more>>
