My work in marketing, audience development, and community relations has spanned 20 years with companies such as the Old Globe, La Jolla Playhouse, Carnegie Mellon College of Fine Art, Carnegie Mellon School of Drama, San Diego State School of Theatre, Television, and Film, UC San Diego, and University of Bologna.
I began my marketing career supporting the director of marketing at the Old Globe, a 30-million-dollar producing theatre located in Balboa Park, San Diego, and eventually returned, years later, as associate director of marketing. For the last ten years I’ve offered my services on a contract basis in order to support the work of small businesses, non-profits, arts organizations, and individual artists. My career has led me to projects with Ojai Playwright’s Conference, Doctors in Italy, Siamo Napoli restaurant, Queen Bee’s Art & Cultural Center, Carlsbad Music Festival, Irving Flores Jazz, Meg Ryan Photography, San Diego Italian Film Festival, Do Good Theatre, and Hiawatha Project.
My expertise and passion lie in helping my clients understand the value of their product and how to communicate that value to their audiences. I specialize in developing data-driven, comprehensive marketing plans, content creation, paid and organic digital marketing campaigns, public relations campaigns, website redesign, and event development and management.
Designing consistent and innovative email marketing campaigns for a diverse portfolio of clients.
Marketing services including strategy consulting, email marketing, photography, web design, graphic design, and public relations supporting artists, small businesses, and non-profits.
Art by Meg McKenzie Ryan and Irving Flores Jazz are two examples of websites I’ve designed and continue to manage through WordPress.com.
I began designing graphics in the 1990s in order to promote the performing arts projects I was involved in. Since then I’ve utilized my skills to support the work of my clients and the organizations I’ve served, including mission-driven organizations, real estate agents, magazine publishers, theatres, and universities.
