About the Instructors


"Let's meet for lunch."

It all began when three friends decided to meet for weekly lunches on Mondays. What was supposed to be a quick bite and a break from work soon turned into all day hang-out sessions with endless cups of dark rose tea, deep conversations about life, and big goals. We realized creatives, just like us, are yearning to feel connected, inspired, and guided. Together, we formed Kreativ with the goal to help creatives follow their dreams and achieve their goals.

Kreativ: the Scandinavian word meaning "Creative." Scandinavian culture inspires all three of us. In their art, in their culture, and in the way they live. Just like us, they believe in living a balanced life. We knew we wanted to help creatives not only grow and learn in their businesses, but also find the balance in their lives too. Because that's what it's all about. Living intentional lives full of balance, joy, and love.
