What is the name of your business and what do you do?
I’m a working artist who speaks and performs all over the world.
Why did you decide to start your own business? How did you get started?
At first my art practice was just a hobby or a side project. I didn’t think it would ever be possible to make it my main focus. When I moved to NYC in my early twenties I connected with older LGBTQ+ artists and realized this was a viable trajectory for me. Getting started was a slow, deliberate, and gradual process. For years it was about making the road while walking—from designing my own flyers, to budgeting for creative projects—a lot of moving parts to launch this ship. It’s been over five years now that I’ve been running my own business. I can’t believe it!
