IAMLALITA is a celebration of my imagination and the privilege of both being alive and creating. With all that is happening in the world, I believe truth that spans the depths of levity and wisdom is part of our creative journey. So I make and do my best to quite literally #bethechange through my work and honest observations.
I hope you feel something here.
Anything at all. And to know you are always worth it. Professionally, I run a creative agency for big ideas. I bring people's dreams to the internet in bold, highly-engaging way. I also write comedy, direct, and live everyday with as much joy as possible.
look at me now: tedx, positively positive + comedy bar.
WHAT can you expect?
Wild ideas springing forth from my imagination. I often touch upon the themes of identity, freedom, authenticity, creativity, spirituality and comedy. I write jokes. In fact, I wrote over 100 jokes on Twitter and Instagram for #The100DayProject.
Welcome to my small sliver of the planet. Thank you for stopping by!
