“Your vocation in life is where your greatest joy meets the world's greatest need.”
- Frederick Buechner
My name is Anna...
With formal training in art, and ten years experience as a freelance photographer I am a nerd for color, composition, and visual aesthetics. Combined with a degree in Anthropology, I care about human stories and contributing my part to social movements that are solving the world's most urgent problems.
I am a highly perceptive designer, communicator and creative director. I develop design strategies and craft content to elevate visual storytelling in nonprofit communications, with authenticity, creative intelligence, and tenacity. Utilizing research and collaboration, I transform brand identities to generate positive social impact.
I am most passionate for the people protecting our water and climate. Therefore, much of my work centers on sustainability and grassroots environmental justice.
Outside of design, I am an avid photographer. I also enjoy hiking, crosswords, and spending time with my partner, as well as my lovable Dachshund-mix, Lady Bird.
Currently living on occupied Blackfoot, Apsaalooké, Cheyenne and Očhéthi Šakówiŋ territory (Billings, MT).
FUN FACTS ABOUT ME:
I am almost completely self-taught. I majored in art for a time, but I realized it was too solitary for me.
My grandfather was a photographer for Kodak and inspired me to become a photographer.
I enrolled in a UX Design program through an Instagram ad. That launched my career aspirations for design and creative direction.
When I was little, all I wanted to be when I grew up was an Illustrator. I am proud to have not strayed very far from this childhood dream.
I am obsessed with the Enneagram. (4w5 here!)
