Chaya is a Brooklyn-based creative advisor who has had the luxury of working alongside photo editors, reporters, graphic designers, web designers, photographers, directors, producers, stylists, art directors, retouchers, and illustrators — assisting agencies, startups, publications, and production crews in the process.

Currently, she is the Digital Content Manager at CultureWorks, the Chief Creative Officer at Marginalized in Mind, and a board member at Free Juice. 

Prior to these opportunities, she has worked at The Wall Street Journal, Trunk Archive, Dippin’ Sauce, Framebridge, COMPLEX, WorkOf, Push for Pizza & EPIX.

She enjoys furniture design, collecting art, and mindlessly scrolling on TikTok.
