A.V. is a DIY expert living in Bed Stuy “Do or DIY” Brooklyn, NY that moonlights as an amateur rap mogul. Unfortunately, her “rap in the mirror” career never took off. Luckily, she has developed other skills. Whether it is producing online DIY classes, planning events for crafters or developing a community of like minded DIYers she has always had a thing for doing it herself. Some of her relationships include HGTV Magazine, DecoArt, Cricut, Febreze, Craftsy and Groupon. With her media appearances on HGTV’s Flea Market Flip, Brandless, Viceland’s The Untitled Action Bronson Show, The Huffington Post, Hometalk, BuzzFeed, Blavity, Ebony and Lifehacker A.V. is determined to change the face of “DIY,” by currently reaching over 20,000 people worldwide.
She is also the co-creator of University of Dope, an exciting thought provoking card game that inspires dope discussions about Hip Hop culture. The first of its kind.
