Welcome! As the founder & lead copywriter of CU, I’m obsessed with seeing how words can light up a creative entrepreneur, breathe fire into their spirit, and revitalize the passion they have for their business. 




Welcome back to the tenth episode of our series, #CUatBrunch.

If you missed last week’s episode, catch up on Episode N°9 here.

On this #CUatBrunch N°10 (!!) featuring a real treat—the lovely + powerhouse of a woman, Amandina Altomare. Amandina is the founder & CEO of @media.alacarte, an NYC-based social media marketing agency.


Amandina Altomare is a powerhouse female founder and thought leader paving the way for a new age in social media marketing. Her unique background in acting and PR make her an incomparable storyteller; she specializes in crafting the stories of brands through video and static content to reach their target audience online. Amandina’s talent for social media and digital marketing was cultivated during her time in fashion PR when she represented acclaimed designers like Christian Siriano and denim wear brand 7 For All Mankind.

Amandina launched Media A La Carte in May of 2020 and has grown it to a multi-six figure business, now a team of 5, and over 12k followers on Instagram. The company has helped over 100 businesses and individuals grow their online presence since its inception. With a passion for KPIs and an insatiable New York work ethic, Amandina and her company are coveted partners for brands in the fashion, wellness, hospitality, and entertainment spaces.
