Photographer | Educator | Mom of 4
I love talking photography, Photoshop, and motherhood.
I love talking all things creative...especially when it comes to photography and Photoshop.
As a mom of 4 I've learned how to take and edit better pictures of my own kids and how to run a full time photography business while also being a mom to 4 young kids!
I am a creative and weirdly positive mom of 4 . I love portrait photography & Photoshop, but more than that, I love to teach others how to do it too! As a former grade school teacher turned professional portrait photographer, I've now come full circle to teaching again...but this time to moms who want to take and edit better pictures of their kids!

Let’s talk about Business strategies, podcasting, mindset, creative strategies, networking and virtual events
Erik Cabral left corporate America after 20+ years. He jumped head first into real estate investing in order to achieve financial freedom. Educating himself, building networks, and analyzing hundreds of deals he purchased his first multi-family
building in less than one year.
He’s a partner in the Renault Winery & Resort, which is the 3rd oldest winery in the US, offers private capital to his network of investors for various projects and looks for opportunities to expand and grow his network in
the real estate investing and entrepreneurial space.
Erik is the founder of the media agency, On Air Brands; the innovative networking and podcasting event PodMAX; the real estate investment company Mindado Investment Group; host, co-host, and producer on multiple shows: Entrepreneurs Circle, Capital Hacking, On Air Brands LIVE, Cashflow Ninja, the Hidden Entrepreneur and True MultiFamily. With multiple businesses, partnerships, and podcasts Erik is the quintessential “serial entrepreneur” who spends much of his time helping others grow their businesses, brands, and reputation.
Erik loves to share his decades of experience in creative, branding, and marketing strategies as well as helping others leverage the power within the podcasting platform.
Erik sits on the board of a 1,000+ member real estate investor group called SJREIA. He is also a proud member of GoBundance, which is a tribe of millionaires seeking to share all successes, struggles, ambitions, and failures without being judged.
Let’s talk about writing movies.
When I tell people I’m from BEAUTIFUL Elizabeth, Colorado (Pop. 1,394), the stock reply is, “I bet you know how to roll a fucking joint.”
Less often, they’ll say “I bet you know how to swing a fucking golf club,” or, “I’ve been to the rodeo in Elizabeth!” While I’m proud of my joint rolling skills, the second and third retorts will lead to a more animated response. I played college golf, and spent six years as a PGA Professional post graduation. To the chagrin of my father, a rancher who finds trophy buckles frivolous, and never misses an opportunity to remind me that with his horsemanship skills, spurs just aren’t necessary, I’d trade all of my golf accomplishments for one scored ride on a damn bull.
Events outside my control (injuries, graduate school) have allowed me to pack on more than 60 pounds since this victory but I still move around the squash court pretty well. One time I lost to my nemesis, Danny Nolan, in the first round of a table tennis tournament. I played my way through the entire b draw to secure a rematch with Nolan, then lost to him AGAIN in the championship game.
I LOVE college basketball. This, alongside of my background in golf and racquet sports has made me a bracketology expert. Curious why a team didn't qualify for the World Baseball Classic? Are you ranking something against five or more other things?

- Talk to me about movie scenes no one remembers
- Classic rock, and anything Matty Matheson.
Movie soundtrack guru, sticker connoisseur, and travel junkie. Let’s be honest; I'm a connector and that's where my passion lies. You can find me sparking up conversations about the thoughts you rarely want to say aloud. Let's strip away the surface level bullsh*t and dive in to who you really are. I like to talk about the secret sauce to life; and grand scheme that’s different to everyone. Talk to me about movie scenes no one remembers, classic rock, and anything Matty Matheson. I am always trying to find new ways to see it all and push myself out of my comfort zone.
I love meeting new people, so let's connect!

Purveyor of Natural Wine, Progress, + Podcasts
Let’s talk about the Loire Valley, Koji, Jacques Derrida, and The L Word (but not at the same time).
By day, I'm your Beverly Hills plastic surgeon for saggy copy. By night, I’m a 2020 remake of Miles from Sideways (still white, way more queer, and Merlot is fine as long as it has little to no sulfates in it).
When I’m not listening to podcasts about how to propagate wild strains of yeast or why you should chop green onions on an angle, I’m scrolling through Petfinder as a form of self care.
My closet doubles as a wine cellar (I’m practical folks) and my kinks include: Bon Appetit videos, the oxford comma, and REI garage sales. I could drop a lot of random knowledge and perhaps even be a little funny on your podcast.
