An Extra Special Project, 2018
Art direction, styling, set design, photography, & creative content for Outsiders Pizza on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter. I produced photo and video shoots from initial concepts through post-production and final delivery. Outsiders Pizza is a new frozen pizza brand created by Nestlé, and I was part of the team to bring the brand to market in Columbus, OH. As part of this foundational work, I organized and directed everything from a basement pizza party to a scrappy video shoot featuring local actors. As part of the launch, I either made or supported the creation of over 50 assets.

Directed and designed a pop-up theater experience for kids during the Lyndale Open Streets Festival 2014. FLUFF tells the story of an 111-year-old woman named Dezi, who is obsessed with baking a sweet treat called Fluff. She's so enamored that she hasn't left her Fluff Shop in 86 years. That is until a lost child interrupts her, asking for help finding her parents. Together, they go on a spectacular journey in a world completely different than the one Dezi remembers. This project was generously supported by Minneapolis marketing agency Zeus Jones.
