I help amazing creatives like you bring your idea to life.  You know that if you take some time to work on a plan for your upcoming show or project, you can move forward with it in a way that makes sense and is more financially viable and rewarding.

Together with this budget template and checklist, I help you develop a plan, break down the numbers, and have the support you need so you can move forward with your show (or project!) more effectively, remove bottlenecks, and increase the chance of making money.

Do any of these sound familiar?


Putting together a budget is something I forget to do - then get into a money hole


This is one of the first time putting together a budget like this, and I don’t know where to start


I don’t want to overspend on a project 


Don’t know how much things cost or how to start figuring it out

Imagine what it will feel like when you go from feeling overwhelmed to having the tools, real world strategies, and support to help you run your business and bring your vision to life.

Looking for this type of support in your work? Know you’re not alone! This is just what a few people are saying:

“I wanted to work with her to organize and identify the mission, vision, and purpose for my business.  We had scheduled meetings, feedback, provided next steps, focus and specificity as well as sharing ideas and viewpoints. We also worked on completing my website and developing other written materials, along with identifying work opportunities that pertain to the services my business can provide.  You are professional, analytical, able to take information in and put it together in a coherent fashion and uses the time wisely.  In addition, you’re very pleasant to work with and open to my specific process.” - Barbara Roberts


“Asking the right questions with growth in mind.” - LA Commons staff


“We adore you and appreciate the work you did for us. We learned a great deal from you.” - Queerwise


Where would your life be if this was your story too?


  • Having the budget process broken down for you

  • Having resources to help you go through putting together a budget - and planning for - your upcoming project

  • Having a starting point with a template and more you can use

Having been on both the producing team and venue side when it comes to putting shows and programs together and executing them, I get how valuable having things like budget planning and beyond is for a project.

How I got started…

The germ for what I’m doing now started when I was an art school student who scoffed at much of the business side of things.

Fast forward to over 8 years of seeing and helping creatives, creative entrepreneurs, and creatives at nonprofits struggle to bridge the vision and execution sides of what they do.  That’s lead me to have 5+ years of helping people just like you bridge the gap between the idea and business side of the work your do - and make it easier for you!

“We were struggling around capturing our financial data from the past three years and how to use it moving forward.  You’ve been asking the right questions - and we needed an intense data scramble and having you onboard to help was helpful.” - LA Commons


“Excellent service and wonderful on the spot troubleshooting.  Will love to work with her again.” - Anonymous

“Thanks for working with us and for being diligent, kind and easygoing during the process!  You’re organized, prompt, thoughtful and creative, and was a pleasure to work with on our projects with our creative arts organization.  

We worked on a spoken word performance that we did as a recorded program online that we subsequently also aired at a live event. Michelle helped us with a variety of aspects in planning and promoting the program. She also helped us with brainstorming ideas for the future of our organization.  

We had no hesitations when we hired you because we felt like you’d be a good fit due to your experience, skills and personality.  You are easy to work with and willing to be flexible and open to new ideas - and after having made the investment to work together, I would do it again.”  - Corey Roskin, Queerwise

What if you had this support too?

You’re a creative that strives for excellence in the work you do and want to make a difference in the world.

You deserve to be able to move forward with your projects in a way that’s financially viable and aligns with your values.
