About Me

A picture of me sitting at a desk with two Apple laptops stacked on top of each other like I'm doing double the work as a normal person.

Hi, I’m Lana. I’m a Libra Sun, Sagittarius Moon and Aries Rising (watch out), and I spent 16 years in the advertising industry, writing sparkling copy for Fortune 500 brands. You’ve probably heard of them—brands like Kellogg, Ford, Cadillac, Buick, GMC (so many cars), Kotex, Good Nites, and United Way, among others. I’ve adopted the tone of a toaster pastry to write social posts for Pop-Tarts, gone viral with a Valentine’s Day video for Ford Mustang, helped revamp Kotex for tweens just getting their periods, and so much more. I started as a junior copywriter and rose to a Creative Director on the strength of my writing and ideas.

And it was awesome! 

And it wasn’t. 


A tweet that reads, "Gotta be honest y'all I am not having a baja blast right now"
I think about this tweet on a daily basis.

Awesome: I worked with some truly phenomenal people. 

Not a Baja Blast: And some abusive bosses. 

Awesome: I got to work on some really fucking cool projects, meet some really fucking cool people and travel to some really fucking cool places. 

Not a Baja Blast: For every one successful project, there were a dozen others I spent months grueling over, working until my brain physically hurt, typing up treatments on planes or in the basements of conference centers, missing out on real life only to watch them wither and die when the (mostly male) management above didn’t get the idea—or worse, wanted to go with an idea of their own, just for laughs.

Awesome: On my best days, it hardly felt like I was working at all. 

Not a Baja Blast: On my worst days, I’d endure screaming phone calls from my boss. I’d have male freelancers treat me like an administrative assistant, not even introducing themselves to the women on the team—who were leading the project. I’d spend Sundays in a mostly empty office building with only workaholics for company, wondering if I’d even get to have dinner with my husband before starting another 80 hour week. And I’d find myself in my doctor’s office, crying over how trapped I felt, until I left with a prescription for Wellbutrin and a determination that I needed to get out of these shitty situations for good. (Wellbutrin Fan Club, Founding Member.)

Note to Self: It's not the work's fault. It's the culture, ding-dong.

Maybe you can relate. 

Have you ever worked a job and felt like it was slowly sucking your soul out through a bendy straw? 

Or have you ever gone home to create something truly creative, something just for yourself—a knitted sock, an abstract painting, a gorgeous landscape photo, a Wickerman effigy— and thought, “This is my true passion”? 

Have you ever gone to a friend’s wedding one weekend in a nice, tasteful, burgundy wrap dress only to come to work on Monday and have some guy named Tim who follows you on Instagram say, “I liked you in your red dress…” while breathing like an ogre? 

Have you ever thought, “There has GOT to be more than this. If only I could work for myself, I know I’d feel so much better”?
