Artists & Creators: Get Paid to Travel and Do Good in the World!
For the past 20 years, I have built the ultimate DREAM JOB - working as a digital creator on UN/NGO contracts - where I get paid to travel, be creative and do good in the world!
My Arts Envoy Lab, powered by Create2030, is the only artist-led training and development program designed to help artists and content creators build a thriving career or side hustle in collaboration with the UN/NGO community.
My program provides comprehensive training, resources, and support to help artists and creators turn their passion into profit while making a positive impact on the world. With paid UN contracts, you can earn over $10k per month, get paid to travel, and use your skills to do good in the world.
As Founder of the Arts Envoy Lab, I believe that every artist deserves to be paid fairly for their work, and I'm committed to helping you achieve your goals. Whether you're just starting out or looking to take your career to the next level, my program has everything you need to succeed.
Join the Arts Envoy Lab today and start building the career or side hustle you've always dreamed of while making a positive impact on the world.
