Get To Know Me
Hi! I'm Alexis. I am a Brooklyn and Seattle based Independent Creative Professional, Photographer and Small Business Consultant. I graduated from The Fashion Institute of Technology, in New York, with a Bachelor's Degree in Fashion Merchandising Management and have over 10 years of experience working on the Product Development and Production teams of many reputable brands, such as DKNY Sleepwear, Tommy Hilfiger Sleepwear, and Lucky Brand Sleepwear.
My most recent endeavor, Alexis Mera, offers colorful eco-friendly digital printed activewear. Ranging in size XS-3X, AM is size inclusive, multi-functional & ethically made in NYC.
I am the resident lifestyle photographer at Alexis Mera and provide lifestyle and portrait photography services for bloggers, influencers, brands, and personal use.
Since launching AM in February 2015, I have experienced the excitement and the challenges of running a small business on my own. Most recently I decided that I want to help other small business founders on this crazy entrepreneurship journey! I have 4 years of small business/startup experience and I am an open book! My experience ranges from product development and project management to social media and right down to the nitty gritty of shipping logistics. It is my mission to help you thrive and grow. I understand firsthand, the ups and downs of starting and running your own business, and I am here to help you!
I am currently living between Ditmas Park, Brooklyn and Capitol Hill, Seattle with my husband and many green plants, my favorite workouts are boot camp and Bikram yoga, and I have a love hate relationship with my foam roller. I am a wellness enthusiast, with a strong belief in balance, I believe you should be the best YOU can be - no need for comparison.
