Curated Content for Egan Maritime Institute

While serving Egan Maritime Institute as the Director of Development & Marketing, each month I would create a comprehensive content plan that incorporated social media and email marketing to drive online traffic to the organization’s website. From drafting the schedule to writing the content, research to image selection and/or graphic design, each of these web articles was strategic and part of an overall communication plan to ensure patrons, donors, and prospects were engaged with Egan Maritime’s mission and aware of the significant impact of its education programs and public outreach offerings.

Fresh Work

The pressure of summer and the opening of the new Visual Arts Center (yahoo to raising, renovating, and opening Nantucket’s first in less than two years… hence my prominent absence from my personal web page), has left little time to create. So, I’ve turned back to my watercolors and to my inks and have been playing with messy skies and free forms. I’ve been romancing the pink and yellow palette, and channeling my OCD into large scale ink works.
