— HEY, I'M BRIDGETTE!
— WHAT + WHY
I founded forty-ninth street, formerly Brand Bee HQ, shortly after I realized I needed to brand + market myself to forward my acting career. My mission is to help my fellow actors + artists brand themselves online and build the life they want all while they are in between gigs!
It started with website design for my friends and has now developed into a blog + community. However, website design is still the bread and butter of what we do around here. I want to help build a website that reflects your personality, + professionalism so you can get back to doing what you do best!
— WHY FORTY-NINTH STREET?
49 is my favorite number + I'm obsessed with the 49th street subway station in midtown NYC. I walked out of the subway one day and was like OMG that's the name of my blog!
— HEY, I'M BRIDGETTE
I am a musical theater actress, website designer + photographer based out of New York City. I started forty-ninth street after realizing I didn't want to work meaningless side jobs to support my acting career. So when a friend told me she would pay me to build her website, I ran with it! I made moves and became a certified WixPro and have now been building Wix websites for 6+ years. I strive to build beautiful, intentional + user-friendly websites.
