RIANA NELSON, 30 - ARTIST & PERFORMING PRO

 

WHY I GOT INTO THE BIZ / WHAT INSPIRES ME:

I am so proud to be an artist + educator, raised right here in Olympia, WA. I tour professionally as a singer with my brothers. I’m also our press + road manager. In addition to performing, we inspire students of all ages with our educational outreach workshops. Calligraphy, art + watercolor, and cooking up fresh vegetarian cuisine are my daily jam... especially when I’m not touring!
 

YOU MUST READ:

“You Are A Badass” by Jen Sincero. Nutrition Stripped (www.nutritionstripped.com) with McKel Hill for healthy eating. I’m part of the NS Society and LOVE it. Mariah Coz has some incredible + actionable biz advice at www.femtrepreneur.co and lastly, for super awesome stationery + design inspo, I love popping in on ohsobeautifulpaper.com

 

I CAN'T STOP EATING:

Authentic Thai food. Also I love a mix of savory + sweet, salty + fresh foods. Daily, I eat healthy, nutrient-dense, vegetarian cuisine, but VERY rarely turn down gelato or butternut squash pasta of any kind! Also currently in love with avocados, hazelnut milk, dates, and the candied walnuts from Trader Joe’s. I am— secretly or perhaps not so secretly— a foodie at heart.

 

MY STYLE IS:

Sporty, clean, black.
