Hi, I’m Andrea, a storyteller and brand whisperer with almost twenty years of experience in design, branding, marketing, and writing. I am dedicated to making our world a more beautiful, compassionate place, and helping changemakers maximize their impact.
As a child, the messages I heard about being an artist were clear: not only did my art not fit into societal norms—there are no such things as purple strawberries!—but there wasn’t any real money in being an artist either.
For years, I only drew and wrote for fun and wished I had some useful talent like being good at (or remotely interested in) math. Until one day when I was working as a preschool teacher and my boss noticed my talent for drawing. She gave me first commission for logo design. That small vote of confidence planted a seed of possibility that shifted my career path for-ev-er.
I’ve worked with a variety of clients, including startups, entrepreneurs, writers, agents, musicians, literary organizations, and many others, in myriad industries, from aerospace to SAAS. Now I’ve combined my creative work with my entrepreneurial experience to provide clarity, vision, and entrepreneurial tools to writers and creatives who want to live up to their dreams.
I do this through online education, in-person teaching and speaking, one-on-one consulting and coaching services, and writing. I also provide hands-on branding, marketing and design services on a limited basis.
