One, we work with influencers who produce amazing entertainment experiences and want to make the world a better place to enable impact through low-touch, high-impact actions.And two, we want to inspire people to attend those experiences – to turn off the computer, get out of the house, and be a part of something amazing. Our goal is to reach the millions of people who want to “get involved” and “do good” but aren’t sure where to begin. Why not start at a boozy brunch, rooftop dinner or music festival?
Hi! I’m Nicole, a serial adventurist, chasing gut feelings that have taken me around the world and back again. I have lived and worked in Sydney, Australia, San Francisco and Shanghai, China. I eventually came back to my hometown LA (Go Dodgers!) and worked for LA Mayors Antonio Villaraigosa and Eric Garcetti satisfying my desire for greater civic engagement.
I stand for all things women especially raising our voices in politics so that laws and programs are created to ensure that all of us have access to economic opportunities whether they be through reproductive rights, equal pay for equal work, access to childcare or many of the other issues that level the playing field for women in the workplace. Vive la femme!
