My background is theatrical, complete with PGDip from the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art in Classical Acting. Bottom line - I know how to tell multisensory stories. I know the importance of a perfectly lit stage, of the way costumes blend together or stand out, the ways an actor can emphasize Shakespearean language with a thoughtfully placed breath - it’s all in service of the larger story, of the core message. And it’s this dedication to the core message that informs my work with you, ensuring every bit of your business is working seamlessly and cohesively.
Most consistently in all my work is my proximity to people: my intuition is top-notch. Understanding each other and sharing stories is how we connect. It's become so overused it borders on cliché, but it's true nevertheless: people don't buy goods, they buy stories. People want to learn about you, to get to know you, and hear the crazy, winding story of who you are and what you do. Social media and sales numbers don't matter in this place - STORY and building connection is what resonates.
In the words of the great Ron Swanson, why half-ass two things when you can whole-ass one?
(Also, if you’d rather half-ass a million things, more power to you, and godspeed on that journey. I am not the one for you.)
A sampling of my past work...
classically-trained actress (LAMDA Ds, woop woop!) and historian by education.
touring actor for a children's theatre initiative, bringing works of classic literature to economically disadvantaged children.
worked in multiple banks in multiple capacities. (I used to be able to pick up a stack of 20s and estimate within a 20 just how much it was)
paraprofessional (assistant to teachers for kids with special needs) at multiple schools working with kids at varying levels.
nanny (aka the twin whisperer) to multiple sets of twins all under the age of 4.
housecleaner for a green-cleaning company focused on ethical and non-toxic cleaning practices.
T.A. for the wildly successful BrandCrush by Tiffany Han and Erin Cassidy.
And that’s not even close to an exhaustive list.
I’ve always had a way with words, particularly rearranging words where I didn’t think they were best utilized. College was spent writing a myriad of history papers, and though the topics and courses varied widely, my most consistent feedback was accolades for my ‘colorful’ way of expressing my theses. Granted, I went to college in northern Minnesota at a small liberal arts school, so accolades for language described as ‘colorful’ may not be entirely accurate, but I stood out, and my grades never suffered for it, so I call it a win.
Speaking of college, all that theatre I did on that job list sprang from a degree in Theater Arts. Which at a liberal arts school means you learn about EVERY ASPECT of creating theater, not just a specialized area (like acting, or costume design, or lighting - you get the picture). All that training, then all that application, means I know how to tell multisensory stories. I know the importance of a perfectly lit stage, of the way costumes blend and stand out, the ways an actor can emphasize Shakespearean language with a thoughtfully placed breath - it’s all in service of the larger story, to the core message. And it’s this dedication to the core message that informs my work with you, ensuring every bit of your business is working seamlessly and cohesively to convey exactly what you need.
Oh hey! You just happened to catch me in a stolen moment, leaning against this pillar here, with a perfect lens flare that would make even JJ Abrams jealous, laughing at how freakin' incredible it's going to be to work with you.
