About

My name is LoudPen. I am the Editor and Publisher of de la Pen...All Pen Everything. de la Pen...All Pen Everything is an international and multicultural online lifestyle magazine. de la Pen…All Pen Everything features fashion, beauty, music, travel, art, events, and more. 

I am launching the "Give LoudPen Ink" crowdfunding campaign to raise funds to support Pen.Point: The Seasoned Traveler and Pen.Style which will be published on de la Pen...All Pen Everything. 

I've been publishing de la Pen...All Pen Everything since 2010. Since that time, I've covered all costs associated with the site. That means, I pay for my domain name, hosting, travel to and from events, as well as covering any marketing costs.

Since launching de la Pen...All Pen Everything, I've covered New York Fashion Week, Charleston Fashion Week, Style.uz Art Week and the M&TVA Awards in Tashkent, Uzbekistan, HoustonPress' Artopia, and the New Cities Summit 2014 in Dallas, and so much more. I've worked with brands like The Royal Sonesta Houston, Lone Star Court, Perlier, St. Ives, SOL REPUBLIC, Of Whonder, ShoeDazzle, and The Limited.

Now I'm looking to expand de la Pen...All Pen Everything by creating Pen.Point: The Seasoned Traveler and Pen.Style. Pen.Point: The Seasoned Traveler is a campaign that will feature hotels, restaurants, events, and retail stores in the US as well as abroad. Throughout Pen.Point: The Seasoned Traveler, I'll be pin pointing or recommending locations that readers should visit while in the respective cities featured in the campaign.

Pen.Style is about creating the visual images of Pennies & Pens which is what I call my readers. It's the fashion/lifestyle editorial section of de la Pen...All Pen Everything. The purpose of Pen.Style is to build my portfolio as a Creative Director and Stylist. Pen.Style will consist of photos & videos of me in various outfits. I also plan to feature and style models, artists, bloggers, entrepreneurs, etc.

I'm calling this crowdfunding campaign "Give LoudPen Ink" because the support I receive from this campaign will allow me to take my site to the next level. I have to cover photography, travel, advertising, and marketing costs. So your support will provide me with the financial support to cover all the costs for these projects.

With your help, I can make my dreams come true! I love fashion, music, art, and traveling and with your assistance, I can create unique and original content about all of the above! I've been providing quality content for four years now and never once have I ever asked for financial help. I just paid for everything out of pocket and made a dollar out of fifteen cents. Help keep my Pen LOUD by providing me with Ink aka funding! #GiveLoudPenInk

Thanks for reading! 

Risks and challenges

After my project is funded, I will need to hire photographers to shoot the photos for Pen.Point and editorials for Pen.Style. I know several photographers so this shouldn't be a problem. If I cannot find a photographer, I'm going to shoot everything in myself. This shouldn't be a problem as I have experience with photography.
