Self-portrait from 2022
(My hair is brunette and super professional now. Pinky promise.)

Howdy! My name is Frankie. I'm a Chicago-based writer, photographer, and brand strategist at an ad agency/production house. Some call me a "jack of all trades," but I prefer to think of myself as a storyteller who isn't restricted by form or medium.
My experience includes writing and self-publishing a mystery novel, leading the full rebrand and merger of a startup, creating a video series about dead things in a local science museum (and doubling their engagement on socials), and starting a photography business. I've also consulted for a Christmas Tree rental startup, written for several newspapers, and interned for NASA, where I researched economic impact.
Through all of this, I have one aim: to tell stories—via words, numbers, photos, podcasts, and design—that matter, stories I hope expand empathy and understanding.
I am passionate about equity, especially when it intersects with art. I also dance (like, a lot). You can learn more about that here.
Let's work together.
