I am Ashley Zackery, author of the self published memoir Casualties of Love & Lust, and I am currently employed as a project manager for a lighting company.
As a project manager, I coordinate and oversee electrical construction for high-end residential and commercial projects in Sunny South Florida. Unfortunately for me, my involvement begins where the creative process ends.
My days are filled with product training seminars of light fixtures I have yet to see in their splendor. I transcribe nomenclature, finalize submittals, convert quotes into orders, and open service requests while my coworkers, in the design studio, use photometry to establish fixture schedules for buildings I may never see or enter.
I, often, find myself daydreaming of blueprints I have drafted of solar powered, modular smarthomes adorned with fixtures and furniture from my home line, AMBIANCE by Ashley. As a proactive step towards my dream, I am pursuing my General Contractor's license and acquiring merchandise to restore, reupholster, and resell so when an opportunity presents itself, I am able stage properties and events to display my products which are available for purchase onsite or at a storefront location.
My home decor line, AMBIANCE by Ashley, is geared towards custom pieces and I am using my learning experience as an opportunity to build my brand and gain exposure. I, also, attend live storage auctions which would mean more raw materials for product development.
I would like to welcome you to my site that you may partake in the journey to entrepreneurship with me as I will be posting my ventures- both business and personal- in the form of blogs, tutorials, and a gallery of my products throughout the restoration process.
Thank you for your support!
