The Artists' Lawyer

Hi, I'm Magi

You’ll find me living my best life chatting with other dream-chasers about entrepreneurship, branding, business organization, action plans, and sustainable workflows.

I’m a lawyer, educator, photographer, storyteller, traveler, and entrepreneur. My journey has taken me from photographing professional surfers while swimming in some of the world's most epic waves to receiving a Juris Doctorate from Rutgers Law. If I’m not photographing a wedding with my husband, Scott, in a remote locale, managing my team of Associate Photographers, or providing legal counsel to creative business owners (like you!), I’m probably eating an acai bowl, chasing my pup, Arti, around the beach, or watching SVU reruns in my bungalow. 

Short for Magdalena.

I wanted to create a space to help creatives achieve success with foundational business practices and legal resources, share my favorite tools and tips, and even include a sprinkle of what's currently inspiring me and helping me manage all the things. Why? If it involves supporting other like-minded, creative entrepreneurs — or brands — count me in. 

My self-indulgences include buying one too many house plants (even though I can’t keep them all alive), booking plane tickets without set plans, Sunday morning snuggles with Scott and Arti, and walking under the autumn-orange sun on the beach. All I ever need is a good book and an oversized sweater, wrapped up in the smell of salty sea air.
