About Cleo
My passions have always been design and photography. I founded Primary New York in 2010 ~ it’s an online multi-brand retailer, where we also design our own in-house collection. In our Brooklyn creative studio, I photograph and create content for our site as well as creative + editorial campaigns for other brands. My husband and I live in the west village with our two year old daughter, Nara and are excitedly expecting our second this July!

There is no elevator to success, you have to take the stairs!

What special skill, talent or gift would you like to give back to the community?

As much time as I spent in design ~ my true passion and what I do most now is photography and branding. I find it very rewarding working with designers on brand direction and would love to share with the community and women launching new brands what I've learning along the way. In terms of family life, I think we nailed the sleep training the first time around ~ but the real test will be with #2!

What is your biggest business challenge right now?

The biggest challenge for me as a creative, has been learning to be super organized with my time ( I went from being in the studio 6 days a week to 3 ) and learning how to properly delegate and not micromanage - it's paid off but it's an ongoing struggle!

Why do you want to be a part of heymama?

I would love to connect with like-minded creative women who are going through this same exciting time of balancing a young family and their own businesses. Working mothers are some of the most competent people I know!
