My Story

 

I’ve identified as an artist since the age of three. I don’t know how to defend it; it’s simply a part of me that is irrevocably mine… a natural instinct, a need, a hunger that is never sated. That creative spark has evolved into design, web, marketing, and photography.

The decision to make my passions also my livelihood has shaped, mocked, tiptoed around, and punched in the face every idea of Art Itself I’ve ever known. Design has settled so deeply under my nerves that I cannot even feel it anymore, it just is, it’s everywhere, it’s all around us and if we disconnect from the digital world it’s still there but breathing. Heaving. Gyrating. Biding its time until the next great Movement regurgitates itself upon us.

Marketing

Content Strategy

Obviously in marketing, communication is key. But there are subtle ways to influence an audience using words alone. I help businesses write better headlines, more compelling copy, more interesting calls to action, and more nurturing marketing tactics. We collaborate on keyword research to discover opportunities on less competitive topics. I also expand, enrich, and give personality to content on more competitive topics. Page one, here we come!

Campaign Placement

Budget, target audience, intent, and analytics all play their part in determining what content goes where, when. Whether that’s Google Ads, social media, email marketing, or more traditional outreach methods like direct mail, great marketing is about meeting your customer at any stage of their interest in you.

Measurement

Data analysis & analytics just might be the most important final step in marketing. We need to be able to calculate return on investment, and the success or failure of our campaigns. By studying what people interact with, or what makes them drop off along the way, we can strive to improve our marketing efforts with every next step!

What you need to know:

I  write & produce content for web and print, with a focus on user-first experiences. I understand which Creative Suite programs best suit my current project and can quickly output finished files to any specifications.
I excel at building audiences online & offline through high quality content creation. I accomplish this through intuitive design, extensive target audience research,  email marketing, social media, blogging, professional photography, SEO, SEM, a keen eye for language, and occasional doodles on paper.
Daily I collaborate with marketers, professionals, and small business owners to produce relevant touchpoints that meet their needs as well as their audience needs. I am a diligent advocate for their brand identity.
I love to travel, no matter the distance. Whether hiking Minnesota trails with my dog or trekking up Mt. Rigi in a cogwheel train, I’m always down for an adventure. Highlights include the London Design Festival, King’s Day, and Burning of the Böögg.
I wll 100% remember your dog’s name ten years from now. I’m one of those people that will veer out of my way to ask if I can pet your puppy (and yes, an old man with a gray muzzle is still a puppy). This of course extends to all animals, but I have a particular weakness for dogs.
