Founder & CoE (Chief of Everything)
Professional experience in the software realm, including product management & development. An eye for creative expression driven by a passion for entrepreneurship.
I have always loved browsing local stores. I'm fascinated by the uniqueness of every store I visit & cannot cease to marvel at the local talent reflected in various products and services.
Having lived in the triangle area for many years, I realized how little of the area I've truly explored. I know this to be the case for many more.
I also discovered that local talent extends far beyond brick & mortar fronts. The entrepreneurial flame burns passionately in small studios and homes, eager to be brought to light.
Localista was born from a need to better expose such treasures across the triangle and more.
I would love to share the stories of many aspiring entrepreneurs in their endeavors to reach a larger market.
Our Vision is to level the playing field for small local vendors by boosting their visibility.
