About

I'm a writer, creative strategist, entrepreneur & a practising art curator, translating emotions into articulated experience.
Freelancing for folks and products I believe in.
I'm a lifelong relational anthropologist, an emotionally intelligent & empathetic woman of colour who defies the idea of normativity & refuses to be defined by any single part of her life. I value the intersectionality in people.

nuanced, unconventional, subversively classic
describe the style of my work.

I design solutions for artists and creatives through strategy with a focus on brand clarity.
Examples:
1) I'm an advisor on the Vancouver Mural Festival's communications committee. I located the missing parts in their development as a non-profit org and how they could shine a light on what the public didn't know — what they do best other than putting art up on walls + what's unique about their approach, attitude & method
2) I'm the co-founder of a digital death management company where we bring a human service to a tech-driven world that is still afraid to talk about death. Leading all things strategy-related, my focus is brand clarity and concept creation based across all departments
3) I handle communications at arts and cultural management agency, Eponymous, who has mostly dance companies as clients. I write grants, award applications, and ensure the messaging and narratives of these companies are tuned, concise, and importantly, stimulating.
++

I create experiences based on engaging, inspiring & educational concepts.
Most excited about socially conscious + impact-aiming projects,
specifically through writing, creative direction, shaping project narrative & exhibition production.

I'm a collaborator and am looking for challenges and people who value innovative storytelling, brand narratives + deliverables that are challenging x impactful. Freelance inquiries welcome.
