Mosaic self-portrait by a YWCA clent

For this annual report, women in the YWCA's residential shelter program created mosaic self-portraits out of broken tile and glass. This inspired the theme,Women Becoming Whole. The copy used the metaphor of making something beautiful out of lives shattered by violence. 

 

 

 

 


Okobos Shoes/The Kenyan Boys Choir

Okobos Shoes is a non-profit foundation out of Wisconsin that makes cause-related footwear, the proceeds of which go to helping children in poverty all over the world. Working with my freelance creative partners, I wrote this web commercial, which was shot by cinematographer Wayne Calabrese.

The Kenyan Boys Choir

We also had the privilege of going to St. Louis to produce a short video for the world-renowned Kenyan Boys Choir, whose U.S. tour was sponsored by Okobos. That was one of those fun, inspiring days where I said "I love my job!"
