Consulting & Freelance // It cannot be stressed enough as to how much of a visual person that I am. My background has continuously been in something that had a visual aspect to it, and a lot of this goes back to the mere fact that my father is in publishing and as a child I would sit in his office talking about the covers of his magazine, Fastline, and why that picture was chosen or why the colors were what they were. Terms such as bleed, DPI, color stories and schemes were integrated into my vocabulary – verbage that I used more than what some of my peers would have liked.
I was fortunate enough to have a part time job in high school at the family print shop That’s when I learned the mechanics of the printing press – I was a 15 year old girl being yelled at by my cousin to put my hair in a bun because he was afraid I would lose it to the machine that he was having me run. It was in this moment when I was covered in ink, light headed from the chemicals that I truly understood the importance of a great piece of design work. And I fell in love.
From time to time, I am design things that aren't related to sports or consult on events. Here are a few examples.
Social media consultant for the 2015 Kentucky Derby, Oaks, and Taste of Kentucky. Worked the pink/red carpet, worked with Grey Goose for their promotion on the KY Derby feeds, Periscoped and SnapChatted the events, created gifs on the ground, and produce content for the social feeds. Highlight of the event: watching American Pharaoh win the Derby and then becoming the first Triple Crown winner since 1978.
Consulted on the 2015 Unbridled Eve Gala. Worked the red carpet and Periscoped the celebrities that came in. Highlights from this included: Periscoping/talking to Cheech Marin, Sarah Hyland, and Warren Moon.
