Become an advocate within the Creative Community was more of a natural progression than a career goal. Often volunteering before joining a board or being hired by an organization, we observed a lack of "Connectors": those who create a path between available resources and those who need said resources.
And because this disconnect does not end with Creatives and patrons of the Arts, our work has often extended to include food and health disparities, gentrification and financial issues pertaining to our local communities and small businesses.
