Meet the Founder

Indya "ICY" Wright - Founder

So, I guess this is the part where I tell you how skilled and capable I am... BUT, first I want to tell you the most important thing to know about me:

My passions and my mission.

 

My passion is creating. It is a great source of catharsis for me.

Art + storytelling are going to be my legacy.

(I'm good at both, but we'll get to that)

 

My mission is to make it easier for creatives and people of color in entertainment to get the recognition they deserve. It requires planning, strategic positioning, building brand awareness and intentional brand image to make people care about your work.

I know because I personally made the pivot from working a traditional job, to transitioning to a CEO... and it took some time to gain traction.

I also care greatly about my hometown of Washington DC and shining a light on the amazing talent in the thriving urban community that exists here.
