Pimp Your Brilliance: Creating Your Own Opportunity With Ed Roth

Blog Post Featured Image_800px

Recently, I was invited to sit down with Monique Malcolm from Keep Chasing The Stars for an episode of “Pimp Your Brilliance”, a podcast about “brilliant creatives who want to leverage their passions to create their own opportunities.”

I first met Monique of Keep Chasing the Stars at CAMP, an entrepreneur’s getaway where you unplug, socialize, and learn how to grow your business. During my time at CAMP, I was able to present my brand and lead some creative workshops while having the pleasure of meeting many creative people, including Monique of Keep Chasing the Stars.

I was honored when she asked me to take part in her Podcast series “Pimp Your Brilliance”. Monique asked me questions about business, operations, and philosophy. I was able to disclose the ups and downs of running my business as well as recommend a few of my favorite books from authors such as Jen Sincero and Dr. Joe Dispenza.

…and believing you deserve a piece of the pie! Why does some big corporate company with no soul deserve a space on the shelf in the store and you don’t, but your stuff’s so awesome?

You can listen to the full episode on Monique’s blog.


Stencil1 + Levis – A night of customization with Ed Roth of Stencil1, hosted by CRUSHfanzine


Stencil1 is pleased to announce they will be curating another event with Levi’s, this time in their newly re-designed Levi’s® Meatpacking Store.

Guests are encouraged bring your Levi’s® denim or pick out something new for customization by Ed Roth of Stencil1. Ed has added some new custom designs due to the political climate, messages of love and unity.

“I am particularly excited about this event because I not only get to work with Levi’s again, a brand I greatly admire, but also it is in their custom specialty store. I am big on customization, it’s a great expression of one’s individuality. I think customizing your own clothes can also be affordable, yet it is a luxury to own a one-of-a-kind item.”



Join us as we celebrate the newly re-designed Levi’s® Meatpacking Store, now featuring exclusive pieces from the Levi’s® Vintage Clothing, Levi’s® Made & CraftedTM, and Levi’s® Authorized Vintage collections.

Ed Roth Print Sold At Charity


I recently designed and donated a print to be sold at a Housing Works event DESIGN ON A DIME. The inspiration was champagne bubbles and was printed on gold metallic paper with a black ink.

We donated our print to 513 Design Studio, an award-winning, multi-disciplinary creative agency, and they created a booth with our print inside.





The print sold in 10 minutes with all proceeds going to charity, I couldn’t be happier!

513 Design Studio also made the editors at Fashion Times Top 5 favorite booths at the event!
