Alison Leipzig
Co-Founder, COO

A multi passionate entrepreneur, creative and healer, Ali has been creating brands for mission-based businesses and immersed in the healing arts since 2010. Her expertise in visual communication combined with her intuitive abilities (as a reiki master + sound healer) allow her to guide the branding process in a truly unique way and her years of experience in building businesses support her as the head of operations at Soul Camp LLC. As a certified sound healing practitioner, trained by a master teacher at The Singing Bowl Sound Institute of New York (SBSNY), she effortlessly combines her creative background with this energy work to support creatives and entrepreneurs on their path to success. 

She left NYC after a decade to live in the Catskills and loves calligraphy, watercolor, ripped jeans and anything Real Housewives.

She loves providing the strategy and support that enables individuals and organizations to make a positive impact on others! She understands how to support diverse client needs through her experience working in corporate, non-profit and start-up environments.

Alexandra owns and operates a Paddle Board Yoga business on the NH Seacoast where she resides with her husband, and can be found hosting backyard BBQs (by the fire pit), traveling, and spending quality time with family and friends.

Hannah loves making complex ideas simple and nuanced offerings clear—each project is an exciting puzzle for her. She is a master at creating a unique, cohesive visual system to communicate YOU across all your platforms. Since high school, she has lived and breathed design, developing visual identities, websites, books, and information graphics for solopreneurs, start-ups, non-profits, and multi-million dollar corporations. In 2015, Hannah graduated from the Academy of Art University with her master’s in graphic design, where she now teaches part time. Hannah lives in South Carolina with her family and many cats (and dog).

Song of the moment: Koshi Bells + Singing Bowls (not a song but I love them!)
Color of the moment: Bright yellow

I love creating identity systems as beautiful as the souls they represent, and the challenge of communicating to their audiences in a clear way

Lars Faye
Technical Director

A dedicated life-long techie and digital virtuoso, Lars has been working with computers before Microsoft and Apple became household brands. From hardware, software, networking, to hosting – Lars delivers over twenty years of solid skills. He’s a master at building responsive websites that deliver on the front and back-end. When Lars isn’t cracking the code and de-mystifying the web, you can find him spending time with his wife and his daughter, cooking up foodie foods, and jamming on his guitar/harmonica while the sun sets over his backyard trees.

Song of the moment: “Beach Comber” by Real Estate
Color of the moment: Cerulean
Fave season: Summer, Summer, and did I mention Summer?

I love synthesizing design & technology, and infusing an interactive “life” to all the pictures that I get to work with.
