“Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.” - Dr. Seuss


Born and raised in California’s Bay Area, Charlii Cruse moved to Brooklyn in 2015 with two suitcases, a love of vintage clothing, and a relentless entrepreneurial spirit. Since then she’s worked as an Operations Manager at a sustainable concept boutique in Greenpoint, a Studio Manager to Photographer and Director Anna Wolf, and now Photo Editor + Social Media/Web Content Manager for Tidal Magazine. At her core she’s a curator with an eye for balance, whether it’s visual merchandising, assembling photo layouts, or conceptualizing fashion editorials, she gravitates toward the laid-back vibes of CA mixed with the refined grit of NYC.

When she’s not working on Tidal Mag or on her vintage shop BUENAS, you can usually find her cruising around town on her bike probably headed to some swanky bar in Brooklyn that serves spicy Mezcal cocktails.
