HI! My name is Rayna, and I am so excited to share PinUp Preserves with all of you. PinUp Preserves creates small-batch specialty preserves in unique flavor combinations using high-quality ingredients. The results are Sassy, Sweet, and Unique – just like me! I grew up on Long Island in a family that values hard work, honesty, creativity, and actively showing compassion to others. There is a great big world around us and what we each do has an impact upon it, so I strive to make that impact a positive one!
In addition to being a lifelong volunteer for various causes, I have run my own business for 15 years as a freelancer in Technical Theater. What is Technical Theater, you ask? We create the backstage miracles that make the onstage magic come to life! I have worked with dance, opera, theater, musicals, print, tours, special events, private clients, conventions – the list goes on and on! This career has brought me incredible experiences and I’ve been honored to work with amazing people on truly inspiring productions, but so much of my work has been about realizing someone else’s ideas. It’s time to make my OWN dreams a reality!
