I’m a Creative Director, Senior-Level Writer, Multidisciplinary Artist. I create constantly, with most of my aha moments happening while traveling at the speed of bike (which, for me, is often 7 miles per hour since I stop to take photos, make TikToks, meet Today’s Nice Stranger, and otherwise wander seemingly aimlessly). Hence, 7 MPH as the name of my creative studio. It’s a hands-on experiential incubator for outside-the-box ideas.
Much of what I do is passion-driven. Agencies often hire me for that passion and use my creativity in their communications efforts. I only work on projects I love. Here are some of mine. See my portfolio for some of yours. If there’s an opportunity to collab, lemme know. I am super-select, so please don’t take it personally if I pass. There are many amazing writers/artists/conceptual creators out there who may be a better fit for you. I always trust the journey.
Public service announcements/campaigns (see the Joy campaign, the You Spoke for Me campaign, The Naked Truth about Hunger, and the Vision Zero ad below)
Poems at the Speed of Bike (these were actually featured in a guerilla art exhibit; there are many more in several of my books) See my portfolio and below for examples of my poetry being used as a graphic “beauty copy” element by my clients (and yes I write the long-form copy, too).
Guerilla art exhibits (often combined with my street photography and poetry) include Selections from A Streetcar Named Aspire, Walls Are Falling, The White Dress Series, and Sunday Paper (dresses made from newspapers and delivery bags) — there have been at least a dozen different exhibits in found spaces, amplified globally across social media.
Flash fiction/street photography (I think I am the only artist in the world working at the intersection of these art forms)
Creative nonfiction (see my books — I’m working on a new one, by the way)
Original merchandise (BikeBloom upcycled bike tube earrings on plantable paper, Artsy Bike merch and BikeNoodle, in addition to my books)
Aspirational media releases (these are not quite true, but could be) as visioning inspiration for your teams (fun fact; I used to lead creative brainstorming sessions for companies/agencies)
