WHO I AM

Online {Producer / Designer / Marketer / Business Analyst}

WHAT I CAN DO FOR YOU

Manage your online presence. Whether it's creating/managing innovative campaigns via Social Media, keeping your website in order or protecting your brand's online reputation - I've done it before and I can do it for you.
Facilitate evolution of design and processes. By observing how your online department does things internally and how it presents itself on the outside - I can help think up ways of doing things better and faster.
Provide a multifaceted creative resource. Image editing, user experience design, musical composition, copy writing, and process improvement. These are some of my creative strengths - all of which can benefit your business.
Engage your customers more effectively. I have a knack of being able to step into a customer's shoes and see things through their eyes. An invaluable skill to have when trying to better relate to your audience.
Create/present content that makes an impact. How effectively content is consumed is dependent on both the quality of the copy and the presentation. I can help you deliver on both counts.
Be someone whom you won't mind sharing an office with for 40 hours a week. Aside from the knowledge and experience I offer, I'd like to think of myself as someone who is approachable, reliable and pleasant to work with.
