No Fair Trade

Learning and working on the creative strategy lead us to hone in on the puppeteers: the parents, the Johns, and the traffickers. All wrong. All sharing a part in human trafficking. Therefore, we extended the Unluckythirteen campaign with Serve Marketing and came up with this.

About Me

I_AM

A city girl, raised in Chicago, born resilient, creative and thriving. Those same qualities have translated in my career. I’ve always had an interest in self-expression whether that be: fashion, photography, poetry, painting, digital design. Honestly, the list can go on. I believe I’m a jack of all trades and a “master of some”.

After graduating from Columbia College Chicago and a couple years in my career, I moved to Milwaukee, WI as an Art Director at BVK . I’ve always had a desire to constantly learn, which drives my career path. Not only do I have a traditional background, but also have mobile, web, copywriting, and UI/UX ability. Currently, I’m expanding my creative chops at Kohl’s Corporate

I spend my free time investing in my Youtube channel #LeopardnLocks, exploring the best MKE eats, engrossing myself w/ foreign films, or dancing the night away.

What’s next you might ask? I’m writing a book, so stay tuned.

I also freelance. Got a bomb project you want to discuss?
