I love a good story.
Especially if I get to help you tell it.

Through my skills in graphic design, writing, social media, and photography, I've helped strengthen a lot of brands big and small. But every creative step has to begin with strategy. That's the foundation we'll build first.

By finding out who you really want to reach, we can begin being open to new ideas and new messages, delivered with consistency and improved knowledge. And have fun doing it.

In addition to my own clients, I've shared projects with other freelance professionals and also offer my services to advertising agencies of all sizes. With  twenty years in the marketing and advertising industry, these are just some of the client categories that I've been lucky to offer my experience in:

  • Museums & galleries

  • Tourism promotion

  • Bars & restaurants

  • Special events & fundraisers

  • Large corporations

  • Medium sized companies

  • Entrepreneurship

  • Film & television

  • Government

  • Economic development

  • Nonprofits
