VIRGO. PLANT LOVER. MANIFEST-GENERATOR.

An innovator from birth, Lindsey Simcik was the type of kid who treated imaginary friends to a self-produced three-act musical in her living room. She graduated from her fireplace performances and moved on to the big stage in cities like Boston and New York. 

Currently based in LA, Lindsey’s boldest job description in life is “CREATOR.” Whether she is writing, singing, or bringing characters like “Just Alicia” to life, she is redefining success by the day.
