Associate Creative Director, Copy

Hi. I'm Awkward Annie.

Los Angeles - Boston - São Paulo

After almost a year and a half of living in São Paulo, I'm back to my hometown: Los Angeles. 
While in Brazil, I wrote a collection of children's stories in Portuguese, sang in an American Folk Rock cover band, and learned classic Bossa Nova songs on the guitar. 

Most of my career has been spent in traditional, digital, and experiential, touching brands like: Red Bull, Dunkin' Donuts, Bank of America, Chili's, and IHOP. Now I'm leading social and digital teams as the Associate Creative Director on Southwest Airlines, ampm, and Dole Packaging Goods. 

Here are a few ways to get to know me better:

Meet me in NYC! I'm being awarded as a Next Gen female leader by She Runs It (AWNY).

Estou nessa plataforma criada para dar mentoria a publicitárias que sonham em trabalhar fora. (I'm a part of this mentorship program that helps brilliant Brazilian creatives work internationally.) 

My last adventure? Scuba diving through Japanese ship wrecks from WW2 in the Philippines.
