welcome!

My name is Amanda Verdery Young. I am a writer, editor, and website designer. My speciality is helping businesses and publications achieve an admired and effective online presence. My unconventional path has made for a dynamic, diverse set of professional skills centered in communication and development. 

Before founding Bombilore, I worked in the arts managing the many facets of artists' career development. During my twenties, I owned a little bohemian teahouse in Burlington, Vermont. I traveled to the far reaches of India and China to source teas and make local connections, and ran every element of day-to-day operations. It's still open today, over a decade later. I am a graduate of Naropa University's Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics (B.A. Writing) and I have extensive training (300+ hours) in intercultural communication, mindfulness arts, and change agentry.  

I've been an entrepreneur for over 13 years. What I've learned is that people want to find community and purpose, want to connect with what's real and visceral in their lives, and want to believe they can make a solid living doing what they love.  

I believe that our professional path is deeply entwined with who we are, why we are here, and how we find our place in the community and the greater planet we call home. My personal passions hover around arts advocacy, a deep love for nature, beauty in the everyday, and commitment to sustainable and thoughtful living. It follows that my clients are often artists, healers, creative business professionals, and progressive organizations. 

I love the dreams and vitality of entrepreneurs and creatives. The success of those dreams often rests on synchronicity, courage, and surrender to something bigger than ourselves. All this makes for great storytelling, which is what modern marketing is all about. And I love a good story. I hope to hear yours soon!

Sincerely,
Amanda Verdery Young
