Hi, I’m Anna.

And I make stuff.

Sometimes that’s turning words into stories, turning colors into images, or turning ideas into business ventures.

Making is in my nature.

I was supposed to be a lawyer. Before that, it was ‘teacher.’

I eventually ignored both paths in pursuit of my own (Dixie Chicks’ Taking the Long Way is my personal anthem), and found myself despondent while riding the fast train to Associate Director in the business process outsourcing sector.

What followed was a crisis of identity that saw me walking away to pursue writing full-time in an effort to enjoy more freedom, embrace my intrinsic talents, re-align with my purpose, and travel on my own schedule.

In the pre-COVID era it was a glorious nomadic life! (I wrote about it here.)

But as anyone who hasn’t been under a rock for the last 3 years knows, that ended not quite as gloriously as it began.

Post-hibernation/isolation I had another new beginning.

My latest detour?

Finally making it to art school—new city and country. My 16 year-old self is blushing with pride!

I continue to make, this time exploring new mediums and forms.

The goal is always STORY and the why is CONNECTION, but the how is constantly changing. And I’m not mad about it. Because somehow, I know it’s all going to come full circle in due time.

My employment experience spans BPO Operations Management, Employee Engagement, Customer Experience, Marketing, Public Relations, Copywriting and Digital Storytelling.

And while there have been times when this all seemed like a hodgepodge of randomness that would lead to nowhere fast, I have since discovered this to be my greatest asset.

My passion for words and storytelling is really the glue that binds them all together, providing me with a unique perspective that delivers exponential value and return on investment for my clients and anyone I collaborate with.

And this next phase of making and storytelling promises to be even more glorious than anything before.
