As we transition for Q1 to Q2 and from winter to spring, let’s recap with a few pieces of content from the last two months!
Number 9 Salon
Video has proven to be the most effective and engaging form of content on Number 9’s channels. Here are some user favorites from March and April.
Again, I love dabbling in graphic design; especially when it’s for my alma mater! I was happy to help USF Alumni get the word out about their Spring Social.
Creative Mornings St. Pete
I joined the Creative Mornings St. Pete team as an event photographer. For the first go-round, I focused on capturing the event details, from signage to candid interactions. Check out the photos!
Never underestimate the power of simplicity. I loved making this content checklist for my company, H2H Social. It was a top performing post, too!
A few years back I hit a roadblock professionally (also known as “writer’s block), and a near/dear friend of mine sent me this TED Talk given by Elizabeth Gilbert, the author of Eat, Pray, Love.
From time to time I revisit the talk, and I love sharing it with fellow creatives/professionals.
If you enjoy a good TED Talk, regardless of your passion or industry, this is a must-watch that can be used over and over again.
Quotable from the talk:
“I loved writing more than I hated failing at writing.”
G’day! It has been quite a few weeks since my last update, because things have gotten pretty busy around H2H Social HQ. Here’s an update on what I’ve been up to.
- First off, I have been shooting more and more photography with the brands I’m working with. Below are some behind-the-scenes shots from Number 9 Salon, plus some fresh head-shots to help spruce up Thank You Mama’s website.
- Here are some videos I made throughout January and February, including the world renowned Florida Heat Woodfire at the Morean Center for Clay, as well as new Number 9 Salon content, and a couple website videos for Thank You Mama; all located in downtown St. Petersburg.

- I was also excited to do a few more graphic designs for social sharing. Check them out.
- Lastly, after having a brainstorm with Number 9 Salon’s CEO, we wanted to create a fresh vibe on Instagram that would be more consistent with appearance. So, I created three forms (I call them “pillars”) of content: 1) black and white imagery/video 2) before and after polaroids 3) just great hair.
Here’s a screenshot of the final product, but you can also check out the Number 9 Salon Instagram, to see what it looked like before.
I was really happy to see the NSCAA show its progressive side with a course on inclusion and diversity. I’ve been a big fan of Athlete Ally, who helped create the course, for a long time. These two forces joining together is a very, very positive relationship for athletes in every sport, regardless of who they are.
In my most busy month yet, I was able to create a slew of video posts for my collaborators. There are quite a few, so I will keep the descriptions short! Enjoy:
I just finished my first Q as a small business owner (H2H Social), and with the new year celebration, I wanted to highlight what I’ve been up to!
Things have started to rev up with the Morean Arts Center and the Chihuly Collection in St. Petersburg, Florida. Here is a demo from the Morean Center for Clay, and one from the Morean Glass Studio & Hot Shop!
Number 9 Salon was a lot of fun in December; between the glitter hair and champagne toast for New Year’s, I had a blast! Here are most of the video posts I created for them during December.
New to the H2H Social list of collaborators, Thank You Mama wanted to do a quick social media video to help with engagement after the holidays. Thank You Mama is a holistic, alternative medicine practice in St. Petersburg, Florida.
I was really excited to finish the coursework and exam for Social Marketing from one of the most respected pioneers in the social media industry, Hootsuite. It was the perfect way to ensure that I’ll hit the ground running in 2017!
I’m a little bit later into the month of December than I’d like to be when posting this; however…it’s the moooost wonderful tiiiime, of the year! In Florida, this time of year is considered to be the peak of “season” for most small businesses, which also means, it’s “season” for me!
Let’s dive right in to a recap of November’s highlights!
I’ve been working on a little bit more graphic design than usual, and created these holiday assets for USF Alumni to send out via email blast, and through social media.
I recently teamed up with the Morean Arts Center/Chihuly Collection to ramp up their social media game. There is a lot more to come, but here we’ve got the #MannequinChallenge for each brand, as well as some photos to promote the gallery store.
It was another super fun month with Number 9 Salon! I seriously love being part of their tribe. Below you’ll see our fresh to death, #MannequinChallenge, plus two teasers from our “9 Days of Christmas” giveaway. Check out the whole campaign through December 9th, on the Number 9 Salon Facebook page.
Last but definitely not least, I was able to work with transplanted artist, Michael Vahl. Vahl relocated to St. Petersburg from Los Angeles. A few months back, I shared a photo of his mural work on Instagram because I loved it so much. From there, we got to talking (never having met in person), and we ended up crushing this timelapse video of his latest project, “We The People.” Enjoy.
