Financially Fluent, Fierce Lifestyle

  • Full-Stack Web Development
  • Web Design
  • Creative Direction
  • Branding

I started nuOpulence as a branding project in college. The idea came from my own personal finance journey as I grew into "adulting". It was inspired by some of my favorite personal finance influencers at the time but with my own twist of queer pop culture. After my initial experiences with personal finance I realized there was potential for my original idea, especially to spread financial literacy within the LGBTQ+ community.

The Mission: Spill the T.E.A.

  • Teach good money habits
  • Empower the LGBTQ+ community with financial literacy
  • Amplify diverse voices and experiences
