Hi there,
I'm Annie

I'm an entrepreneur who specializes in bright ideas in visual communication and education.

About Me

Thanks for visiting my tiny corner of the Internet. I’m Annie, a multifaceted entrepreneur with a passion for visual communication and education.  That passion has continuously expand me to new fronts in digital and media arts, leading to fulfilling career opportunities that fill my heart and, oftentimes, my schedule.

 

My academic roots in family studies, human development, and media, motivated me to identify gaps and create resources that inspire. An award-winning content creator, I continuously strive for excellence in concept, application, design, and impact. My latest project, Focus Posters™, is the first web-based app for parents and childcare professionals to create visual supports that reimagine routine™ for kids in real-time, with characters they design to look like them.

I live in the Greater NYC area with my fiancé and our two cats, and am always open to connecting over a cup of hot cocoa (for the locals) or a grab a "digital cup" on Zoom. In my spare time, I enjoy Photoshopping family and friends onto historical paintings, making jewelry out of shrink plastic, and long walks in the park to brainstorm new ideas for Focus Posters™.

Marketing & Design

Available for Freelance and Consultation

During my time as Director of Marketing for Fluent Video, I collaborated with the Accounts Executive to strategize longterm marketing plans both in-house and for clients. I took lead on graphics and promotional materials for both digital and traditional marketing efforts. Meanwhile, I enjoyed my own freelance projects and working with a diverse group of clients. To maintain client privacy, I omitted their work from my public portfolio, but am happy to provide more relevant examples upon request. 

(But I did totally include my favorite personal photoshops and designs because, well, why not?)

Educational and Informational Host

On-Camera Talent

My theatre-kid roots and performance background translated well to on-camera comfort. I've starred in various commercials, web-series, and independent projects. I currently freelance for a major online education company, so my face may pop up on a classroom projector every now and then...living the dream! 

 

One of my previous "long withstanding" roles included portraying various simulated medical ailments in academic settings as a standardized patient (and I have some fun stories about it, too.)
