Ann manje!

As Nike planned for the return to work at their World Headquarters, Blue Ribbon Studio planned a way to get Nike designers to come together. What better way to bring people together than over food?

Programmed as an opportunity to present cooking as creativity, BRS invited Gregory Gourdet to create a signature sandwich for the studio based on the BLT on the eve of the opening of Kann (Top 50 Restaurant, New York Times 2022).

In conjunction with the communication surrounding this artist talk, cooking demonstration, and catered lunch, I managed physical and digital graphic and messaging updates in preparation for officially reopening post-covid.

I provided copy and strategy for implenting communications across the studio space, updating the website, and sending business critical email from leadership and BRS.


A writer and curator exploring the liminal spaces of the literary arts. I am the author of two chapbooks and have fiction, reviews, and poetry published widely. My interest in how words can be experienced has led to solo work and collaborations to create installations, music performances, broadsides, karaoke, and video poetry. I founded and directed Till, a literary organization that offered an annual writing residency, and am currently co-director of Cadence Video Poetry Festival at Northwest Film Forum.


Approaching communications and creative direction with a storyteller’s craft and a poet’s ear. I have more than a decade of experience increasing engagement with meaningful brand experiences through creative approaches. My unique blend of marketing, programming, and writing skills allows me to understand and connect with a wide spectrum of audiences. I have defined and produced end-to-end experiences for artists, businesses, consumers, and stakeholders while growing followings and margins across industries.
