Hi, I’m Leah, and I’m a:
Metaphor maker. Alliterater. Photo taker. Illustrator.
I’m a writer, photographer, illustrator, and creative communications guru with a penchant for heartfelt storytelling. I tell true tales, both verbally and visually, to expose the timelessness in timely trends, the soft solace in the hustle, and the magnificence in the mess of human life.
I work with brands, entrepreneurs, and organizations to craft digital storytelling campaigns that are both strategic and sincere. I edit articles for Clementine Daily and write for a range of online outlets like My Modern Met, Design*Sponge, Heart Magazine, and Elephant Journal. I do custom commissioned illustrations, and my recent photography clients range from sweetgreen to Bitten to Girls Write Now. I’ve also styled photo shoots and events with Zio & Sons.
My prior background is in public relations and corporate communications. I launched the viral #dailydoseofwhimsy Instagram campaign at Pink Olive and wrote the monthly “love letters” (like this one) for the store’s sister company called OliveBox, in addition to spearheading blogging, public relations, social media strategy, graphic design, and events. I created The Bromley Group’s TBG Tidbits blog and accompanying newsletter.
The Tasting Table says I’m “cheeky.” The Caption Project says I “unite keen observations with great affection for the world.” I say humor and heart are equally important to the human experience.
I’ve been traveling all around the U.S. since September 2016, volunteering as a farming and gardening apprentice. I’m an avid doodler and a devoted journal-keeper. I make a mean avocado toast. I run on an almost daily basis. I have a soft spot for silly puns, subtle metaphors, and alliteration, always. I believe in small beauties, the significance of serendipity, and the healing powers of a sunset and a mug of hot tea.
