THE LOVE AFFAIR
We meet. We connect. We fall in love.
From all different walks of life, the talent at Lost Pearl Creative all has one thing in common.
We love creating & communicating companies’ brands that the right audiences will connect with, see their value, and fall in love with their products or services.
We want you to stand out from your competitors and attract loyal brand followers.
Intrigued by artistic projects since I was little, I have transformed this hobby into a career that I am extremely passionate about. Through advertising and design, I am able to exercise my artistic ability while helping businesses achieve their marketing goals. I am able to use my strategic mindset to build a foundation of reasoning behind all our design and marketing projects.
Additionally, I have a passion for becoming a positive force in the world around me, both locally and abroad. Combining my talent and this passion, I am able to make difference in people’s lives through my artistic abilities in the form of low cost services for our non-profit clients, in addition to volunteering and service trips on the side.
I am someone who is extremely driven towards personal achievement. After being told by the head of my university’s communication department that double majoring in Creative Advertising and Strategic Advertising was not possible while working a full-time job, I did exactly that and graduated Magna Cum Laude.
World traveler. Yorkie lover. Food connoisseur. Clothing collector. Ice cream smuggler. Fitness fanatic. Passionate designer.
When I’m not telling clients’ world-class stories through crafted experiences, I’m working for my home church, playing my guitar (badly), or spending time with my family.
Switching gears from pre-veterinary to graphic design was a big jump but it was one that allowed me to create and design as a career. I love visuals that catch the eye and leave an impression, which I hope to achieve through my journey as a designer. Being able to transform scribbles into completed design is something that amazes me.
I am currently in my final year as a Visual Communications major at the University of Texas at Arlington. While attending school I am excited to be working and learning with a creative agency.
During my free time I love cooking and baking, particularly macarons. I am always on the hunt for new bubble tea and coffee spots, where I then sit for hours looking at cat posts on Instagram. When I’m not having food adventures, I enjoy doodling, sleeping, binge watching TV shows and spending time with friends.
Communication is dynamic and demands constant attention. My initial attraction to Communications was the ability to help people understand each other even across barriers. The internet is a vast space that gives us the ability to communicate with each other and gives businesses a voice to connect with their audience. I love curating content and copy to help connect people online which challenges the barriers of time and distance.
I am currently completing my Senior year at the University of Mary Washington. I will graduate with a degree in Communications and Digital Studies in the Spring of 2021. This internship has opened up my classroom experience and really offered me a glimpse into my field of study.
If I’m not doing school or working I’m mostly likely with my friends looking for a new adventure. I love singing and playing paino especially when I have the privilege of volunteering on my church worship team. My other hobbies include art, writing poetry and music, watching Gilmore Girls, and coffee… yes, coffee is a hobby.
What makes content work on the web? Great messaging, a strategic site plan, simple navigation, elegant design and programming, and getting the details right. Those things all matter for success in search, too.
A good SEO strategy brings in the traffic. And isn’t that why we’re doing this? I push for design and content that work naturally for SEO. Our clients benefit from better findability on the web, and more conversions. Boom.
I’ve been a Marketer for a long time, working with international brands as well as local SMB’s. I should be a better guitar player than I am, but most importantly I’m a husband, father and grandfather. And I consume technical blogs with my morning coffee. Jamaican Blue Mountain, please!
I love the challenge of creating and communicating companies’ brands through the expression of the written word. It is exciting to read about the products and services you have to offer, and it is my job to showcase their unique, and exceptional value to the world.
My professional experience has been primarily in teaching and writing. I have a Masters of Education and a Bachelors in Special Education. I have taught all age groups from elementary to college. During my career as an educator, I have developed a variety of Service Handbooks, created programming for faculty and students, and taught organizational, management, and critical thinking skills to college students.
I am excited to be a part of this team of visionaries. Let’s heat things up. I’m in love with all things desert, Arizona, cacti and lizards. I’m a Qdoba regular; they know my order. And my husband and I recently joined the stealth camping community. Stay tuned for our “life-in-a-van” adventures.
As Lost Pearl Creative’s Executive Counsel, I provide insight and expertise as a recognized leader in corporate and marketing strategy and business development.
