Where I've Been

Where I've been:


I've spent my career thus far working on passionate teams and fine-tuning my skills. Each project has sharpened my talent for branding through compelling copy and visual imagery.


Here are some highlights from the past few years:

  • Joined the creative team at Hanna Andersson as a digital copywriter and was promoted to head brand writer a few months later. I write and oversee Hanna's storytelling across all channels, partnering with the Creative Director to develop the brand voice. Responsible for high-concept campaign brainstorming and subsequently writing all supporting content.

  • Began organizing with Sunrise Movement PDX, a local chapter of the national youth-led climate action organization. I co-facilitate the Green New Deal team, manage media outreach and press relations, and oversee our social media strategy and content creation. I do all of this on a volunteer basis in my free time. It’s been an honor to be a part of such an exciting movement led by young people fighting for a livable future!

  • Spearheaded Warby Parker's Portland brand presence, developing high-performing content which regularly received 2,000–4,000 likes and 50–80 comments on Instagram. Covered exciting events from conception to execution and worked as PR liaison for the Portland Warby Parker "Do Good Arcade." 

  • Developed multiple content series for Adobe's Project1324, producing some of the account’s highest performing features. One series received over 5,000 likes, 470 shares, and 60 comments on Facebook alone.

  • Wrote daily articles and essays for BUST Magazine and Juxtapoz, dissecting cultural happenings and interviewing major art world players.

  • Featured on Instagram's own premiere LGBTQ channel "#VisibleMe" as a relevant LGBTQ artist and influencer. #VisibleMe was covered by the Huffington Post and Teen Vogue, and became a finalist in the Shorty Awards for Instagram of the Year.

Additional volunteer and organizing experience:

  • Organized the Portland leg of Sunrise Movement’s national Green New Deal town hall tour while also spearheading communications efforts and media outreach. Participated in a three-week national leadership training.

  • Organized and hosted a phone banking event in October 2018 to help disenfranchised voters understand their ballots and gain access to resources such as translation and other accommodations.

  • Participated in a three-day intensive workshop with Community360, a Kansas City based nonprofit that equipped youth organizers with anti-oppression workshops and tools.

  • Frequently provided support & advocacy-based education for LGBTQ+ peers as a member of the community. Revived and led my university’s Queer Union, fostering a safe space for LGBTQ+ students. Advocated for gender neutral restrooms and cultural sensitivity training of all faculty and staff.

I’ve had the absolute pleasure of working with Maddie at Hanna Andersson where she has excelled in creating cohesive brand experiences for the company. She is a talented content creator who not only came into Hanna and learned quickly the brand voice but brought new ideas both around content and process. Maddie is intelligent, assertive yet respectful and always accountable. She works quickly, efficiently and always meets (tight) deadlines.
Maddie was hired to craft and edit all written content for HannaAndersson.com, as well as create messaging for multiple emails sent weekly, so you have an idea of her work load. I was pleasantly surprised, when I needed additional help on social media during the holidays that she volunteered to help me out nights and weekends.
