Brooke's unique life experience grows organically from one event to another. In one year she revived a defunct garden, learned how to can and preserve her excess produce and then created an artisanal jam company to share her homemade creations at local farmers markets. She used my design experience to create the brand 'Poppy & Moxie' to set herself apart and highlight her unique flavor profile. As a team player she utilized her photography skills to capture the offerings of other vendors and help the market’s social media outreach.
Creative intersectionality using visual communications is my strength. I've thrived by making bold and unusual connections that leverage skills, interests and needs. I enjoy incorporating multiple talents into projects. This turns work into collaborative fun.
Brooke grew up in Northern Illinois. While at college she marched in the Ohio University Marching 110 as a mellophone player. She graduated in May 2015 with a Bachelors of Science in Visual Communications with a focus in Interactive & Multimedia Design and a certificate in Sociology.
