I also do quite a bit of work for schools and non-profits. It may not be glamorous, but I believe it's important, and there's a special place in my heart for the most vulnerable among us—kids, the homeless, and nature.
A local independent K-12 school needed help overcoming a perception of elitism and conveying a more relatable purpose. We created a rotating home page that captured the school's focus on experiential and outdoor learning, something every parent might want for their children. MY ROLE: Concepting, copywriting. ART DIRECTOR: Matt Ebbing.
Published by the COCC Foundation, this glossy magazine mails out to college donors. I was honored to be tapped to write this cover story on the college's new president, Dr. Shirley Metcalf.
This video also ran as a :60 on local cable TV—after the owner of the cable company saw the video and offered to run it for free. MY ROLE: Creative direction, voice-over. WRITER: Geoff Rogers. ART DIRECTOR: Matt Ebbing. FILMMAKER: Wes Coughlin.
Tiny Hey is a community letter-writing project I launched in October 2015. The inspiration for the project came while volunteering at the Bethlehem Inn, an emergency shelter for homeless adults and families in Bend, Oregon. Talking to the residents, it became evident that every person had a story to tell that was both deeply personal and surprisingly universal. We all have stories. And these stories are opportunities to connect. The project is currently on hiatus, but you can dig through the archives here.
I'll be updating this page soon with work for Deschutes River Conservancy, Emerald Mountain School in Steamboat Springs, Bethlehem Inn, Heidi Berkman (The Bloom Project), plus more work for COCC.
