Paulina is a passionate and creative Detroit native, who splits her time between NYC and Detroit. Channeling these attributes as Executive Director of PLAYGROUND DETROIT. After years of living in both cities she sees various ‘connections’ between NYC and Detroit; both cities share a rich history which have influenced America as we know it,  both are breeding grounds to some of the most innovative artists, musicians, and filmmakers, and both have endured dramatic changes  over the decades, all inspiring the spirit of the people who call these cities home.
