  • Writer

    The world is a great big place, full of ideas and perspectives, beauty and torment. I write to figure things out, to explore new ways of thinking, and to empower those who haven’t yet heard their stories told. And  honestly to sort out my own shit. I’m a grad of UCLA Extension Writers’ Program and was a 2014/15 scholar.

  • Designer

    Communicating ideas with stunning visuals, one project at a time. That’s the plan. I’m a seasoned graphic and web designer who loves converting complex ideas into designs that communicate, enrich, and invoke action.

    I was named Top Ten Designer by CreativePublic.

    Need to kick things into gear and do something that actually works (for your career, your product, your biz)? That’s what I do.

    You bring your best to the table and I’ll help you figure out how to bring the people over who will eat it up. I’ve been doing this for over fifteen years and I’ve worked with a spectrum of clients from multi-platinum recording artists to local entrepreneurs, weaving their raw materials into brand gold.

    Here’s a little bit more about that.

“I’ve had the good luck to work closely with Andrea at Lucky19 as a contractor. She is a leader of the best kind: an addictive, loveable personality and a serious, tactful mind, she imbues trust and confidence in all her clients and partners. Not only that, but she’s a great marketer, too, with an alchemistic ability to create brands or ideas that are pure gold. Highly recommended.”

“Unfortunately, Andrea is missing one thing… a cape.

She is super-creative, super-personable, super-talented, super-knowledgeable, super-business, super-super. When Andrea jumps on a project you don’t just get standard designs or standard ideas, you get super-designs and super-ideas. Will someone please sew her a cape.”

“Andrea’s energy and passion for what she does could light up a planet. She is an excellent designer and she gets branding. A designer that gets branding is a must in today’s branding arena. I love her dedication to embracing and continually learning for the benefit of her clients and of course her website rocks which is proof that she knows her stuff!”

“Wow…. this is why working with a professional is worth the cost. I almost wept – you really [get] what I’m trying to do…”

Andrea came through for us with flying colors! She was recommended as someone who could produce great design and do it quickly, and that is exactly what she did. We came to her with a ridiculous deadline to create a website for a client and she handled the entire project with grace, humor, utter professionalism and above all, great design. And it was delivered on time. I definitely recommend Andrea and plan to work with her again at the next opportunity.”
