A Little About Me
Driven by curiosity, I spent 12+ years tinkering to realize stories are my fuel. Whether I'm developing businesses, consulting Fortune 100 orgs, chatting to regulars while pulling the best espresso in the East Village, or weaving words on the page, I explore stories.
Roused by creativity, I'm keen to build brands, tactile products, & books, laced with the DNA of sound storytelling. Can I help?
Opened a small specialty coffee shop sandwiched between two pizzerias on 12th Street in the East Village of New York City, our flagship location quickly became a neighborhood favorite & watering hole for regulars, with a fierce cult following.
With the hopes of growing our brick & mortar business, we opened our second location in the West Village, offered tastings, retail whole beans, quality instant coffee, and even equipment.
Saltwater translates the coffee shop experience for aficionados and newcomers alike with ready-to-drink, holistic coffee solutions, growing to 300+ grocery markets in NYC.
