It all started in a dark room, after eating lots of m&m's...

I was a Brand Strategist and I had been sitting behind a hidden mirror, observing moms of toddlers talking about snacks. For over five hours. 

I couldn't take it anymore and escaped to the bathroom. The tiles were old and mauve colored. I sat down and cried: "God, there's got to more than this."  

That was just one moment. I had many more like that in my journey to finally finding work that I LOVE. It took me 10 years. I don't want it to take you that long, or for your employees to struggle or to question where they're at while dreading what they do everyday. That's why I founded WOOPAAH. 

And my official bio is here, too...
