The CalArts Pool Fisheye Snapshot

Michelle Roshanzamir (Theater 09) notes, “Since graduating from CalArts, I’ve gone to grad school—receiving an MBA with a minor in arts/nonprofit management—and have started my own company, MVR Creative. As a consultant and producer, I help creatives and leaders bring their ideas to life and develop their businesses. I work with a range of creatives and leaders to bridge the gap between the creative side and business, coordination, and management side of the equation. You’re passionate and driven about the work you do but can be overwhelmed and all over the place when it comes to getting organized and turning your ideas into an actionable, results-driven plan. Having real-world strategies to develop your business and bring your idea to life is totally achievable. You can keep doing more of what you love and move forward with confidence on your ideas—and your business—in a way that makes sense financially and aligns with your values and goals. The germ of what I’m doing now started while at CalArts and much of the work I’d started doing in the years after. I keep seeing how much creatives and leaders—many of them working in the arts, entertainment, and culture sector—struggle with the business and management side of what they’re working on. Through individualized support, I help you develop your strategy, determine your next steps, and explore your options—including funding—so you can make your vision a reality and reach your goals in a deeply fulfilling and financially rewarding way.
