WHAT. I am the Brand Language & Communications Strategist of Dinámico. This start-up brought me on to concept their brand language and define their brand identity. Little did I know that was just the tip of the iceberg. In the process I have developed their US and international communications strategy, worked with their graphic designer on international ad campaigns, and directed the creation of their copy, content, and online presence in the US and abroad. We are currently working on a 360 degree ad campaign to promote their LABs and objects.

This started as a ground-up copywriting project that included visual and linguistic branding, web development and advertorial content creation. It has grown into a multi-tiered creative development project spearheaded by a team of graphic designers, social media specialists, and photographers. I am currently directing a pivot to capture new customers in a younger demographic.

WHAT. This was one of a number of projects I did for That Tea. This was a product copywriting project that had me balance sales with art and a health nuts’ sensibility. I extolled the virtues of matcha tea, while emphasizing its health benefits and without compromising its captivating aesthetic.
How-to Article. The client requested a how-to on living a healthy lifestyle with an eye toward their tea selection.
My goal was to create a well-researched step-by-step plan that debunked some conventional health myths.
Essay. The client requested an essay explaining the negative impacts of Dental Service Organizations (DSOs) on private dental practice and providing marketing solutions for family dentists who want to strike back. The essay was published in Dental Town.
