Hi, I'm Vanessa! I'm a creative who specializes in both the art and science of storytelling.

As a copywriter and a scientist, I bring a unique blend of experience in research, marketing, and design to my creative work. I use my Master's degree in neuroscience, combined with a lifelong passion for the arts, to create engaging words and visuals that deeply resonate with target audiences.

Companies and brands I've worked at include Yahoo, Teespring, StyleSeat, Wake (acquired by InVision), and NuReveal Skincare. I've also worked with several nonprofits such as the Rockford Park District, the PAWS Humane Society, and the American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA). Currently, I work on projects needing creative storytelling in areas including content strategy, copywriting, and creative direction. Check out my portfolio to learn more about my approach.

As a real wildcard, I also have experience in acting, improv, and comedy writing, which gives my creative work a fresh and playful flair. I combine all these in the science storytelling series I founded, Neuroscience Theater, where I take complex science on the brain and make it fun and engaging to general audiences, employing my expertise in research, writing, presenting, creative direction, video editing, and content strategy.
