Hey there! I'm Britta, a San Diego native currently making creative magic happen from a humble desk in New York City. I've worked with a spectrum of industries and business structures, from startups and local businesses to Fortune 250 companies, and along the way I've amassed 15+ years of experience in creative direction, digital and "analog" marketing, brand building, advertising, graphic design, copywriting, event promotion, video production, illustration and photo editing.
Because of my unusual mix of marketing strategy experience, creative skills, and digital innovation drive, I've been dubbed a "unicorn" by my peers -- a nickname I'm happy to accept, because in this rapidly evolving and media-drenched world, it takes something rare and a bit magical to truly make an impact. I enjoy the challenge of working with clients through holistic strategic planning and execution, and I'm always on the lookout for new opportunities to pioneer new and exciting ways for brands to engage their audience.
