Hi, it’s me Melissa. 

Welcome to my world. 

I get paid to come up with ideas and bring them to life. 

The work you see here is an accumulation of many years as a staff and freelance ACD, Copywriter and Consultant at agencies large and small, clients established and start-ups, East coast and West - and plenty in between.

All kinds of ideas, for all kinds of things.

From TV and 360 campaigns to naming the colors of your favorite make-up, 
from outdoor for tech fashion to internal for a big bank, I’ve done that. 
From big international consumer brands to grassroots non-profits, I’ve been there. 
From traditional advertising and marketing, guerrilla and social, production, proposals and presentations, I’ve done that too. 

It’s what I do.

I am a happy collaborator, a strong leader, an excellent manager, an insatiable idea maker, and a multi-faceted creator.  

When I’m not doing other stuff.

When I'm not busy finding the heartbeat of a brand, penning the perfect tag line, or pulling together the best team for your project, you’ll likely find me at sunset on my paddleboard, getting lost on a travel adventure, obsessively planning a volunteer project, or behind a giant bucket of popcorn in a dark movie theatre.
