About Lydia

I am a collaborative creator working across multiple fields, including, now, business! My formal training is in writing, and for the last seven years I've taught at the college level in composition, creative, and promotional subfields. I love big ideas and step-by-step problem solving.

Work Experience

Co-Founder

NOMAD International

June 2013 - Today

NOMAD (Network of Mutual Artistic Development) is the project I seek co-founders for. NOMAD is a peer-to-peer arts networking platform allowing users to search each other by artistic discipline or location for information, job, event, and spacesharing, as well as for work and service sales or trade. Currently, my counterpart Lindsay and I are responsible for all operations including: legal filings, website development in coordination with our developer and a pre-built directory platform, strategic business direction planning, media setup and promotions to expand target users (people working in these creative fields).
