Here are some referrals for friends (and friends-of-friends) who are relocating to Austin. These are people who make my life in Austin better and easier. I can wholeheartedly recommend each of them:
Trainer Christine Tusa - VERY gifted in repetitive stress & postural diagnosis/improvement, core training, pain management and prevention, etc. She calls it "pre-hab" and she blows my mind about my body every time I work with her.
ROAR Salon - Rory McNeil (color) and Janet St. James (style) save me from myself on a regular basis. Rory does the best color in town and Janet just moved from NYC where she styled a very impressive list of clients, but wanted a slower life pace, so now she's here! Seriously awesome talent at ROAR.
Graphic Designer Dave McClinton - Dave is a branding genius and is not afraid to tell it like it is. His crisp design aesthetic is the same way. We're working on a new erinivey.com design and I will (of course) let you know as soon as it launches.
Stylist Erica Gray - Erica flew in from NYC to style the very first "Live at The Long Center" performance in 2008. Since then, she has thankfully relocated to Austin and I use every excuse to work with her hair/makeup amazingness.
Graphic Designer Renee Fernandez - Renee is a true design artist. She makes all those posters that people take down from bulletin boards to frame in their living rooms.
Got a recommendation?
