Catching up and passion projects

By | Business | No Comments

Over the past few months, I have been working really hard to do a better job working with and understanding all my clients, needs in my community and really collaborating on some cool projects I’d love to share with all of you. This would not have happened without meeting some incredible people over the past few months and trying to personally grow, which we all know can be hard to do or put a focus on. I started taking a night class at UNBSJ and since then collaborating and sharing ideas has really changed the definition of what that meant for me. Projects and client work I take on now provide more results and better relationships and has made the purpose of these projects so much better.

Strange Grooves has become a really important project for me. It has opened up some phenomenal opportunities and even more amazing conversations. We are on Episode 17 and I am extremely humbled. Check out the latest episode above with Josh Bravner from The Hypochondriacs. We have been working hard, Cherise and I, to book great interviews, plan and create great events, book more slots where we spin our records, spend more time at peoples hours and venues talking about music and it has been so freaking fun!

More on Strange Grooves from Grid City Magazine or from the website.

Area 506 has been something else I have been putting a lot of time and effort into. It is a festival here in my hometown of Saint John and I am thrilled to be on their board of directors as the head of marketing and communications. This festival means a lot to me and so does the success of it. I love music and seeing people enjoy it even more. That being said, There is a wicked show on March 13th that Shivering Songs and Area 506 are putting on. The sheepdogs will be playing the Kent Theatre here in Saint John. Make sure to grab some tickets yo. I would also ask if you know of anyone who may be interested in being a vendor or a sponsor to get in touch on the website.

Check out more on the Area 506 Instagram page here.

These passion projects have really made me do a deep dive into why I do the things I do. That goes for clients, community, myself and many other factors.

The last one I will tell you about for now is The love economy NYC Gathering.

Over the past couple months, I have been working with some phenomenal people to make this event a reality and its happening it’s under 2 weeks. If you know someone who should be at this get them in touch with us via the Facebook page or Instagram.

Hope you are all doing amazing! Give me a shout if you need help with anything marketing related or if you would like to help or contribute to 506 or Strange Grooves.

Cheers 🙂

☾ Hello!

👽 VOLUME 3 is now live!

Yesterday, Canada celebrated the life of Gord Downie, and the Music The Tragically Hip gave us to enjoy and continue to make memories and experiences with.

Strange Grooves had their first live listening party, and we were joined by Tara Keeley and Abigail Smith. Although it was under sad circumstances, this is the exact reason we created this group and project. To bring people together to the music they love, even when tragedy happens. it is more important than ever before that we connect and have conversations, especially about music, something we all enjoy in some capacity. Having friends over, and discussing what The Hip means to us was very nice, and really comforting. We urge everyone who wants to join our group, write for our page, YOU are more than welcome.

Our listening nights are very chill. Genuine conversations and hanging out. We would love to hear from you.

Serious sit down with a “Sweet City Woman”

Cherise Letson and I were destined to meet one way or another, and we found each other in two capacities. We were both incredibly integrated into the business community in NB and kept on hearing about each other and finally, we got to meet by strapping on roller skates and hitting the rink to roller skate. Since that day, We have listened to many records, in particular, The Stampeder’s greatest hits, and spent countless hours skating, and having deep talks about business and the start up scene here. Finding someone who is sincerely interested in our community and is a super amazing person is really cool.

Cherise works for Huddle. Huddle essentially elevates and shows the stories of interesting entrepreneurs and businesses throughout the region. They are passionate about making a difference by illustrating that business is creative, and a powerful force for positive social change.

We believe in this philosophy as well. We know how important, the brand, the story and every component of the business is.

I wanted to sit down and chat about what keeps her energized and give you some context about her feelings on the city currently.

Grab your headphones:)

1) What is your favorite record?
2) Tell the audience something random
3) As a professional, who is deeply integrated into whats happening in the city, business-wise and amongst the community what do you most like to write or report on?
4)Because you cover and help provide context and keep people in the loop, as well as elevate their business efforts, what do you personally feel about all the momentum our city has right now as a young professional and as a resident?
5)What advice would you give to a young person?
6)What do you find most rewarding about what you do?
Insert the other question once I hear the audio)
7)If you could predict the next few years for Saint John, what would you say that looks like?
8)Do you feel more motivated because of all the energy in the city currently and how do you see that effecting you?
9) What do you want for your city?
