Welcome to my digital home — a lovingly built sanctuary of contemplation, wisdom and whimsy — which I invite you to explore in detail, to inspire your deeper purpose and greater play.Here, I share what I know, obsess on the details of life, discuss all the things about which I have zero clue and some of the things about which I know a lot. I don’t fit a niche. I’m not one to follow a linear path. If you’re cool with that, I’d love for you to stick around.
You’ll find bits about being present in the world, pursuing goals, following dreams, feeling pleasure and getting passionate; about travel, entrepreneurship, social issues, spirituality and creativity… and whatever else strikes my fancy.
Here are some brass tacks: You’re not going to find me chatting much about the work I do with clients, but that doesn’t mean I wouldn’t love the opportunity to work with you if we’re a good fit to create some magic and make the world, or just one person’s life, better for it. If there’s something you’re curious about, you’ll get a basic idea of the scope of my work by going here, and please feel free to reach out and simply ask me. As you may have gathered, I’m always up for opportunities to collaborate.
So, what is the point of hanging out chez moi? If there’s one thing I want you to take away from any time you spend With Emily, it’s this: Inspiration.
I want you to feel supported and better equipped to leap into the details of your life, strengthen your sense of purpose and expand your capacity to play, in a sustaining and impactful way.
For you to get a feeling for the whole “purpose and play” approach to life I’m talking about, poke around the archives and see what resonates with you. Below are some great places to start your exploration.
What makes me tick?
At heart, I’m an intuitive strategist, a multi-media artist, a storyteller, a teacher and an observer of human nature. I’m also an inquisitive introvert, a committed explorer, a reverent agnostic and a spontaneous romantic. I’m liberal and honest, which means I call bullshit when I see it. Oh, and I curse, with pleasure.
I love trees and tigers, and believe both should be kept around. I also love dark chocolate and banana pancakes but have no problem making those disappear.
I adore children, I’m a kick-ass aunt and I have no plans for any kids of my own.
I believe in grabbing a passport and exploring the world. I’ve called seven different countries “home,” and highly recommend chucking everything to become an expat at least once in your life. I’ve done it a few times.
In fact, I’m currently in the midst of one of those adventure-filled rebuilds. In September 2015, I shed a long-standing identity in Hollywood to create a new chapter in Europe. In January 2016, I chose to nest in Paris or, more accurately, the city chose me, and you’ll find she colors and flavors the world as I currently perceive it. Like the best creative endeavors, this is an incremental journey, full of luscious adventures — both petit and grand — without a roadmap or particular destination. I sincerely hope that the pieces I share about it from time to time becomes part of the fun for you in hanging out with me here.
And I do hope you stay a while. Together, let’s explore life, love, purpose and play, noting the details along the way. I’m honored by your presence.
