Most of the time I just say I like/don’t like these words/pictures/things.

The rest of the time I build stories, strategies, identities, and teams.

Represent Black Arts
VP, Brand

In the wake of George Floyd’s murder, people took to the streets—and brands everywhere proved just how oblivious they can be when it comes to allyship.

Instead of patting ourselves on the back with a black tile in the IG feed, I conceptualized and championed a public arts initiative that donated high-profile wall space and production resources to local Black artists.

Represent Black Arts was launched in partnership with the Black Artists + Designers Guild and featured original works by Karen J. Revis in New York and Los Angeles. In the years since its debut, the initiative has won industry awards and been featured in the New York Times.
