Creative Communications Consultant
Last active: 09/22/2014
As a creative social entrepreneur, I have consistently managed a wide range of projects that creatively envision how to bring about positive change in our world. In the last five years alone, I have worked with over 500 artists to create public art projects and exhibitions that authentically reflect the communities in which they are made. One of the most notable of these projects is the “Artistically Irrational” exhibition series I have curated with world-famous behavioral economist Dan Ariely. Clear documentation, honest communication, and detailed timelines for each deadline allow us to balance short term launch goals (such as design proposals, brand messaging, social media engagement, and timely implementation) with long term goals (such as strategic project development and financial sustainability).
To support these many projects, I have devoted seven years to learning creative and ethical techniques for driving revenue through social media, direct email campaigns, and funding proposals. To encourage public support, I have created passionate and clear copywriting for each project, consistently updated their individual social media outlets, and developed multimedia projects that highlight the unique energy of each project’s brand. My recent work as a Creative Communications Consultant with Conversing Fire allows me to pass those hard-earned lessons in authentic and engaging visual communication directly on to individual artists who challenge themselves to change the world through their art.
My most recent social service project is acting as the Project Manager for LiveGlobally, a fledging non-profit that is dedicated to funding the Ingrid Education Centre in Mantopeni outside of Nairobi, Kenya. I am organizing and promoting three fundraisers this fall to garner more than $50,000 for the Ingrid Education Centre’s Teachers’ Fund and promote living wages for teachers. By developing a cohesive visual brand through print materials and web copy, I am building the foundation for consistent and sustainable funding.
As your Communications Consultant or Project Manager, I would gleefully lend the organizational and community building skills I have learned over years of coordinating impactful socially-responsible creative projects to to help you develop an impactful digital marketing strategy that will create brand consistency and foster loyal user engagement.
