I am not an agency — and that's on purpose.
I devote my work to ongoing in-person interviews, shadowing and investigative journalism.
Yet, I am also deeply passionate about helping my clients do amazing things with my findings.
As such, I've developed a stellar network of experts with whom I join forces to take on projects that include
PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT, BRAND STRATEGY, EVENT PLANNING, ETHNOGRAPHY,
PORTFOLIO STRATEGY, COMMUNICATION & SOCIAL MEDIA STRATEGY, DESIGN,
In addition, I am available for:
I work to deepen an audience's understanding of the Millennial + Gen Z markets from a psychological, emotional perspective, and bring to light how changing wants and needs influence your business.
