Amy does a lot of things. They seem diverse, but they’re all guided by a few core values: the pursuit of giving & receiving love, helping others to have a voice and a choice, and examining the nature of our reality instead of just living in it.
Throughout her 10+ years in social justice work, Amy helped elder jazz musicians survive in the modern music economy (jazzfoundation.org), built a grassroots movement around an anti sex slavery activist, helped build a crowdfunding platform leveraging personal video to scale the face-to-face ask, and co-launched a women's health campaign calling for broader access to abortion pills for self-managed abortions in the US (plancpills.org).
She also cofounded Journey, a public benefit corporation creating conscious travel experiences designed to transform both the communities they visit and the travelers they engage. In 2 years, 600 Journeyers built 150 homes, refurbished schools, worked with refugees, and built a skate park for underserved youth.
After years of storytelling and digital communications, and being a computer geek, she started to build websites for friends. This grew into her current web design company, where she helps amplify the missions and calls to action for entrepreneurs, coaches, activists, and brands. She finds it incredibly creative and fun, and loves the people she builds with.
Amy is a lifelong musician, starting with the piano at age 6 and choirs at age 14. She was music director at UC Berkeley’s summer camp, played in Brooklyn’s indie rock scene with the Mia Riddle Band, the Sirens of Brooklyn indie rock womens’ chorus, and her own band Sidecar. She launched a guerilla-style music series (7trainsessions.com) that went on to feature 100+ acts in living rooms, rooftops and on subway trains. In 2017, she cofounded Formerly Alien: a post-apocalyptic space duo on the search for a new home.
