Year

Description

Years in fashion, film+television, and the entertainment industries followed by immersive and experiential wellness studies allowed me to master strategic brand telling. Engaging early on as on-camera talent with top brands in fashion and entertainment to include HBO, BET, ABC, NBC, VH-1, Elle Magazine, Glamour Magazine, and Essence Magazine ignited a relentless curiosity about the unseen trade secrets driving visibility for the world’s top industries.

 

From cover stories and features on leadership, new trends, tech, fashion, fitness, and style during my time as a senior writer for Industry Rules Magazine to the Huffington Post blog contributions to curating and co-producing a mini-documentary for a private tech project that featured Wyclef Jean, storytelling is in my DNA.

 

Client wins that continue to inspire my passion for storytelling include awards for excellence as a result of long-term biz dev and marcomm visibility strategies that included web, social media, social impact, and events that I rolled out on behalf of clients. I have offered public relations and integrated marketing strategy and related client services to support the following brands: East Side House, QUARTERS (co-living), and Soho Contemporary Art for its Ringo Starr Peace & Love Exhibition and Sale. I worked on additional multi-media projects with MWD Lifestyles/Weddings by MWD Lifestyles and The Style Marc, PUNTO Space, ThetaHealing©NYC Wellness Center and School, Mommi-POP, HolistiCityLyfe Wellness & Travel, and the 3rd Annual True Beauty Women’s Celebration.

 

My affinity for client relations, image development, working with niche influencers, nascent products and services, emerging brands, travel, innovation, and discovery are evergreen.
