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 NeueHouse, and the Chief Creative Officer/Founder at Marginalized in Mind.

Prior to these opportunities, she has worked at The Wall Street Journal, Trunk Archive, Dippin’ Sauce, Framebridge, COMPLEX, WorkOf, Push for Pizza & EPIX. She was also on the board for Free Juice.

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