Hi, I’m Mia Mayweather
SUSTAINABILITY STRATEGIST. HERBALIST. EDUCATOR.
I’ve buit my career on exploring places where seemingly disparate ideas meet:
nature & cities.
sustainability & art.
film production & environmentalism.
data & creativity.
This curiosity continues to drive my approach to thinking about global environmental and social solutions.
I earned my Master’s in Urban Sustainability and have spent the last six years building my expertise by working on
mulitdisciplinary projects that explore those intersections where change takes place.

I am a multidisciplinary sustainability professional. I combine my expertise in strategy, data and creative design to develop environmental impact-reduction solutions for brands striving to develop sustainability initiatives in a meaningful way. I have worked for a variety companies including Disney, NBCUniversal, Sony, among others.
I work with companies who strive to weave sustainability into the fabric of their operations.

With my services, I encourage my clients and their employees to become invested provide training and materials to encourage companies to maintain a strong sustainability plan, encouraging employees to become invested in sustainability efforts.
When I’m not working, you can find me in a dance class, hanging with my cat, Otis, or making my way through the myriad of mind-blowingly delicious restaurants that L.A. has to offer.
