With 19 years of experience growing a multi-media platform in branded entertainment, I have become an imaginative, results producing, and experienced content creator and storyteller for consumer brands. I have a deep understanding of how to market content, grow audiences, and increase brand awareness, along with developing national relationships in all areas of new and traditional media.
My design style is eclectic, with a focus on creating spaces that are livable, personal, intimate, and of course, beautiful.
I love to eat waffles for dinner, I'd choose the beach over the mountains any day, and my favorite book of all time is To Kill a Mockingbird.
WHAT I'VE DONE
This caption should read "What haven't I done." My degree is in Criminology, I was a social worker in the early part of my career which did teach me to tune in quickly to people's needs.
I opened my own event company and designed and produced events all around the world. Then in 2000, I was recognized by Seattle Magazine as one of 20 people shaping the city of Seattle, and that changed my path. Out of that experience my personal brand was born.
I developed an entertaining column in Seattle Magazine for 10 years, and wrote a book. I've done segments on almost every National show including Ellen, some of them multiple times (excluding Oprah), and had my own show in Seattle. I've had an HGTV Halloween special and several National television pilots.
WHAT I DO
I'm just getting started! As any entrepreneur, I continue to juggle multiple projects. The variety of the creative keeps me engaged from television , to creating B2C content for brands, to styling and merchandising for a variety of private and retail clients - I'm never short of a challenge, which is great because I'm always growing.
I also direct and produce short form video that focused on consumer products, DIY, and Personal Brand projects. .
I'm currently working on a podcast called Crisis & Cocktails, and will be shooting a pilot for a National network in December of 2019. Fingers crossed and stay tuned for more details.
