PORTFOLIO OF WORK

VIDEO PROJECTS

Video content is continuing to provide increased conversions as compared to text and even static visual marketing and content online. These are some of the projects I have created through generating unique video content, or incorporating photography into an animated slideshow.

SPIRIT TO SERVE

In August 2016 Baton Rouge was inundated with two feet of rain in 48 hours. The event caused severe flooding and team from Greenwood properties were impacted. This video was created to highlight the recovery efforts of fellow hotels.

MARKETING & BRANDING

I believe that branding is more than a logo, it is the stories our guests and ambassadors tell about us. I also know that a strong brand is the best way to ensure a great marketing plan. This small collection highlights some pieces of the diverse marketing and branding projects I have completed over the past several years.

HOTEL BRANDING & TRAINING

July 2018

I completed a rebranding project for an independent historic hotel in the portfolio. Working with an historian we crafted stories about the family that built the home. The story was then used to redesign all collateral, websites, and service training. Working with an interior designer, the signature suites of the hotel were created with the characteristics of some of the family members. I created and conducted a history, area, and service training for the hotel staff.
