Hey there, we are
CHRISPIN + CRANE!
Our intrinsic nature is to leave our earth better off than we found it and this determines our disposition to create awareness of the fuller version of life.
Little by little, step-by-step, we want to become the best version of ourselves, while really loving and appreciating who and where we currently are in that journey. And of course, helping you do the very same through our 24/7 conversation at C+C.
Through our writing, storytelling, organizational consulting, personal and professional development and varied pop-up events - peep the calendar here - we provide tangible solutions to complex problems; all while helping to advance thoughts, conversations, ideas, values, and mindsets; and ensuring that we are doing so in spaces that are diverse, safe, tolerant, respectful and kind.
EBONNI BRYANT CHRISPIN
Gil has spent the last 15 or so years of his life working HR, consulting, and organizational development; i.e. teaching managers to be effective leaders and better humans.
When he isn’t working, spending time with his family, or obsessing over all things Chrispin + Crane; you can find him contemplating how to improve his quality of life, planning his next getaway, or scouring the land for a consistent hitting partner. He adores tennis but, yes, tennis is only a distant second to his beautiful wife Eb.
Gil is a lover of life, a former beauty company co-founder, and a Big, Bold, Black, and Beautiful believer in the power of meditation, therapy, physical activity, relaxation and flights to distant lands.
Eb has been managing businesses for over 10 years and has a background in organizational development and marketing. She loves logistics, organization, and more than anything in the world, bringing people together.
She and Gil met on eHarmony in 2011 and after some ups and downs, they found their way to a blissful relationship (still filled with work) and a business they love doing together.
She is particularly excited about Chrispin + Crane because the entire idea comes from a desire to live life to the fullest, have fun, do cool shit and have the cultural dialogues not everyone is willing to have.
