Communications Specialist

I develop effective online communications strategies. I believe that a robust communication plan should consist of compelling written and visual content that dynamically adapts to the viewer. In other words, the layout and design should be responsive to the myriad of viewports, i.e., computer, tablet and mobile devices; in addition, messaging should be customized for website, email or social media delivery. For messaging to break through the complacent, ad-saturated environment it must make use of media-rich content that include animations, data-viz graphics, striking photos and top-quality short videos.
The good news is: I can do all that.

In over 10+ years of professional workplace experience I have seen business marketing plans evolve from brochures and business cards to today's complex electronic messaging. I have developed a strong skillset that applies to the diversity of print and online communications. I have worked in communications and marketing departments for news media, associations, retail, industrial and entertainment operations. I am currently based in the Northern Virginia / Washington, D.C. area. I develop original graphics for online presentations, and thrive in environments where I can use my passion for photography and videography to leverage messaging to a higher level.
