Get To Know Us

When we founded Sunshine, we wanted to make sure that our hobbies became our work.
We take on projects that we are passionate about, and we wake up excited each to develop those ideas.
We are driven most by working with people; Sunshine revolves around collaboration and building together.

Building Sunshine Studios has been a dream come true to be able to work with artists and creators. I've had a life-long passion for the arts, and spend much of my time writing and reading. I’m a total bookworm. Outside of Sunshine I spend most of my time rock climbing and traveling, and have lived abroad in five countries. I’m so happy to bring my passion for entrepreneurship to Sunshine Studios and help spread the love of art in the world.
