In case we haven't met before, I'm Shell!
I've been self-employed since 2013, so I understand the behind-the-scenes mayhem of running your own business. I'm ready to share my successes (and failures) with you, so that we can both grow and achieve astronomical success! (or just pay the bills)
Since graduating from Digital Media, I've worked as a camera-lady, editor, graphic designer, animator, live event tech grunt, art director and more...
A couple of years into my stint as an Art Director in TV, I threw it all in to work for myself. My bosses told me I was crazy, that I was making a mistake. They tried everything to make me change my mind. I said NO!
And I've never been happier.
I found the freedom to travel, choose the jobs I wanted to do, and now I'm living it up in the megalopolis that is Tokyo, Japan with my husband and an army of stray cats.
