Meet up with Jules Holliday

For today’s post, I wanted to say a few words about a local creative dynamo named Jules Holliday. I met Jules originally at a Christmas party for Nashville-area photographers, but at the time I didn’t realize quite how much we had in common. I found out through Facebook that Jules was going to be meeting up with a number of locals for a project she’s calling 20 Meetups and asked if I could be part of the project (which she wrote about here).

After spending one-on-one time with Jules, it was obvious that this girl is going places. She’s got that drive to meet, to create, and to make a difference. Like me, Jules is a photographer, a web designer, and a knitter (!), but beyond that, she’s a videographer and something of an entrepreneur.

One of her pet projects (ha!) is called The Monkey Project and provides fair trade wages for the artisans of Huancayo, Peru for hand-crafted sock monkeys. You can actually find these hand-made monkeys at different spots around the Nashville area (like Frothy Monkey Coffeehouse and Grimey’s) or online.

Back in her hometown of Columbus, OH, Jules was involved with a number of local bands, doing photography and promotion. So it made complete sense for her to bring her talents down here to us in Nashville, and since she’s moved here, she’s also become quite the band videographer, doing work for Noisetrade and Sirius XM radio.

Check out Jules’ site below to see her talent in action. And be sure to keep up with what she’s doing because I’m sure we’ll start seeing her name attached to many more projects in the coming years.
