BRAND EMPOWERMENT AGENT
for HUMAN-CENTERED MARKETING
THROUGH STARTING MY CAREER in design working on highly recognizable brand marketing teams, I developed a strong foundational knowledge of what connects consumers to brands. It’s been a passion ever since. As a highly empathic artist, I am fascinated by the interplay of human psychology and brand bonding. I’m a student of human nature—it’s why I also write novels.
My deep, career-long work in this field informs and enriches my more expansive work as a Marketing Director. I view it as a natural progression to strategize for content and distribution channels that will trigger customers to act throughout their buying journey. It all works together.
When hiring me, you hire my path to a fully realized marketing machine starting with my work as an editorial illustrator, then, my work with commercial photographers, as a photo retoucher, a graphic designer, digital and visual designer, UX designer, video and content creator, blog writer and marketing professional.

If I'm not busy promoting my clients' brands, I'm either in Seattle, New York or San Fran catching contemporary art, reading or writing fiction, or shooting noir/action videos with Torbi, a cute but extremely feisty tortoise shell tabby playing a hired killer at our home studio in beautiful, lively NE Portland, OR. How can I help elevate your brand?
