Hi! My name is Desiree' M. Slaughter,
but people usually call me Desi for short!

I'm a code writing, pixel pushing, content crafting, influencer and creativepreneur from Detroit, MI
who's currently living in Houston, TX with my rescue pup Bandit 🐶. Dedicated to helping you thrive in business and build the creative life of your dreams, I wake up everyday with the drive to make a positive impact on the world and inspire others.

Through my blog and business endeavors I hope to connect with all you creatives,
brands, students and nerds!
