Commercial Work

Résumé

I currently work full time in the Communications Office for the Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Arts at Washington University in St. Louis.

I am also available for freelance creative projects. I can provide expert writing, editing, marketing, and creative services for projects across a range of industries, including academia, art/design, commercial real estate, and retail. I have mad organizational skills, can translate industry jargon into actual human speech,  am resourceful and quick on my feet, and there’s nothing I love more than a challenge.

Knowledge base: Microsoft Office, Adobe Creative Suite, Drupal, photography, light design work (including basic video editing, layout, and print production)

  • Marketing & advertising content
  • Social Media management
  • Web copy
  • Bios & profiles
  • Video scripts
  • Email blasts
  • Catalogs
  • Newsletters
  • Grant writing/editing
  • Concept work
  • Spinning straw into gold

My portfolio includes work for Brown Shoe, Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis, Build-A-Bear, Soft Surroundings, CPI Corp., StoryTrack, Continental Research Corp., A.G. Edwards, Corporate Express, Island Press, Washington University, as well as several independent artists.
