I’m a writer, designer, and photographer located in Austin, Texas.
As a treatment designer and writer, my role is a wizard behind the curtains who seamlessly sews together visuals and content bringing directors' visions for films and commercials to a tangible format ready for the pitch.
I also write and take photos! Whether you need blog articles, a proofreader, or a killer photo shoot, I’m your girl. I’m happy to provide work samples, so don’t hesitate to reach out with your ideas. Let’s make some magic!
Born in downtown Austin, Texas, I grew up surrounded by color, art, music, and life all around me. My family moved northwest of Austin to the hill country, where life slowed down and I learned the importance of hard work, gratitude, and embracing the outdoors.
At 18, I moved to Missouri to attend Mizzou and studied Organizational Communication and Fine Art with an emphasis in Photography. After studying abroad in Valparaíso, Chile for my last semester in 2012, I backpacked around South America with a few friends for a month.
I moved back to Columbia, Missouri in 2013, which was when I worked as a SEO/SEM Consultant and co-planned the Homegrown Art Show to raise funds for Rainbow House.
I moved back to Austin in 2014 and obtained a position at Mood Media as a Voice Consultant, where I worked with Voice talents, audio engineers, and schedulers to bring a messaging and music experience to retailers, restaurants, banks, hospitals, and beyond all around the country. In the evenings, I took classes to learn some new skills that would propel my career forward. These included a mid-level business class and an HTML5/CSS3 class.
I fell in love with the challenge of coding, so I enrolled in a four-month career blueprint course on Responsive Web Design & Development. After completing the course, I eventually obtained a role at the YMCA of Austin - Town Lake branch as a Communications Director. I learned so much during my time there, like how to manage large-scale projects, lead team meetings, connect with community partners, establish empathy in conversation, and streamline communication in a non-profit environment.
After some changes in my personal life, like so many others, I needed to take some time to regain clarity. I embarked on a four month road trip, in which I circumnavigated the U.S. and the southern portion of Canada with my dog, Sage. We slept in the back of my Subaru Outback while carving our own path around the continent. I returned from this trip in November 2017 after 120 days of exploration, growth, challenge, and change.
Upon returning to Austin, I obtained a job in tech as an Email Marketing Specialist and have been freelancing as a writer, designer, and photographer under rosie sunday. I’ve worked for big fashion brands, SMBs/e-commerce merchants, reputable film directors, aspiring authors, law firms, and others to do my part in realizing their project to its completion.
This work has taught me how to generate content for a diverse portfolio of clients, ensuring their brands and messages are communicated in a clear and effective way.
