About

Stephanie is my name. Storytelling is my game.

My worst childhood memory is the time my brother made me eat a leaf. Coincidentally, his worst childhood memory is the time he broke his arm after being pushed off a slide.

After stints in San Francisco, New Orleans, Tucson and San Diego, I find myself settled in Austin, TX. That means I have a lot of opinions on tacos, swimming holes and "how it was when I first moved here."

I'm raising a super mutt named Maeby who loves chasing squirrels, birds and airplanes. A therapy dog school drop out, she's made it clear that she also has a lot of opinions on things — including wheelchairs, strollers, hospital carts and pretty much anything else with wheels. She'd be happy to tell you about the next time she sees one.

 
 

In my non-spare time, I'm a creative director and copywriter focused on brand development and all things digital.
