Meet Desi

Want to get to know more about me, huh?

Read on to dive deeper into the story behind who I am and how my story is unfolding today

Millennial. Foodie. Techie. Creator. Dog mom.

My name is Desiree' Slaughter, but I pretty much go by Desi (most of the time). I'm a 90's kid from Detroit, MI, who spent most of my childhood caring for my siblings. I love creating, tech, solving problems, helping people, and have an unnatural addiction to organization. I'm ambitious, driven, social and a complete ball of energy who even sings all the time (even though I know I can't).

A Little Backgound

From my younger years up until now, I have always had a wide range of interests that typically revolve around nerding out on whatever I was passionate about and creating to my heart’s desire. I've always had my nose in the books...academic, reading, magazines, my journals, Harry Potter, you name it! I'm a born techie that shamelessly loves Apple products, and I can spend hours online for everything from work to browsing.

As a creative, I began as a self-taught artist drawing my way through art school before finally ending up at University Preparatory Academy High School where I was introduced to independent learning, coding, and design. I started my creative journey with nothing but a basic understanding of Photoshop and an open mind to learning new things. After switching from Applied Engineering to Media Arts & Technology as my major at Michigan State University, I dedicated my career and college experiences to learning everything I could about branding, web design, content marketing, and digital systems.

A strong believer in owning your identity and the benefits of technology, I use my online presence to educate and inspire those within my reach by sharing my personal and professional experiences. Every day, I wake up with the drive to learn, grow as a person, build wealth, make a positive impact on the world and inspire others in business and life.

Where I Am Now

After moving back from a 3-year stint in Houston, TX, I am back living and working in Lansing, MI with my dog Bandit while I work on figuring out this thing called LIFE (secretly dying to get back to Detroit).

By day, I am fortunate to spend my 9-5 translating abstract public policy concepts into compelling, digestible content across various digital channels and creating modern, scalable, functional websites for Public Sector Consultants.

Additionally, I am a delivery driver for GoPuff, where I deliver everyday essentials to customers’ desired locations. Outside of my employment, I’m also frequently working on a few side projects like starting an online shop and offering branding, websites, and digital strategy services to service-based solopreneurs and SMEs (like me!).

As you can see, I do a lot of things!

Through my blog and businesses, I'm telling my story, sharing the journey of chasing my dreams, and helping others with what I learn!

When I'm Not Working

My Capricorn nature makes me a worker bee, so I can easily get lost in my work.

These days, when I'm not working or on the computer, I might be found at home hanging with my rescue dog, Bandit, but I also enjoy getting out for social events, cooking, traveling, and creating new memories with friends and family.

Final Thoughts

Now that you know a bit about me, stay up to date on what's happening in my world and current events on my Facebook Page, follow my daily thoughts and commentary on Twitter, see the world through my eyes on Instagram with daily adventure vlogs and photos, and get inspired by my pins on Pinterest. With my obsession to dominate the Internet market for my name, you can pretty much find me on any site as @desimslaughter.
