About me

Do you have a company or brand, or are working on a project, where you have (somewhat) defined the direction, audience & marketing initiatives, but you aren't sure how to visually speak to your audience? Do you struggle to build a consistent look & feel for your brand through photography, design & social media channels? I can help you! My background in Communications Management, Online Marketing and Creative Consulting, combined with my experience in content creation, photography and blogging, enable me to take a 360° approach to every project - combining both strategic and creative thinking with a strong focus on audience engagement and brand consistency. Hire me to work with you on: - creative direction (photography, styling, consulting) & editing (text, visuals, designs) for specific projects; - building a consistent look & feel for your brand or project that matches your company or project’s personality & goals and engages your target audience; - fine-tuning your branding and need a second pair of eyes to check your brand consistency (visual cohesiveness, clear & unified messaging, tone of voice); - social media consulting & influencer management (including help with making your Instagram feed look consistent and on point).
