Barb's Beer Project

I worked closely with Tom Murphy, founder of the Barb’s Beer Foundation, creating design collateral and marketing to restaurants and taverns to put “Barb’s Beer” on their taps. Barb’s Beer was brewed to raise funds to support research to find a cure for non-smokers lung cancer. As the slogan states, “Every Sip Takes us a Step Closer”. Here is an example of a poster I created for partners and businesses participating in the project. It was truly an honor to work with Tom and I encourage you to learn more about this incredible foundation he created in honor of his wife, Barbara. More...

Purple For Paige

When Anne Malone approached me with an idea to host a fundraiser for her daughter, Paige, we immediately got to work planning. Anne had already come up with the slogans Team Paige Strong & Purple For Paige she just needed marketing collateral to pair with it. The project began as an in-house silent auction fundraiser, spearheaded by Anne and Catering Manager, Ilana Knudsen but quickly grew community support, in Bellingham and beyond. The project is now ongoing and aims to raise awareness surrounding juvenile epilepsy and treatment options. More…

Bellingham Brewers Ball

Definitely the most fun promotional project to date, if the photo tells you anything. The idea of a "Brewers Ball" was birthed as a fundraising event for the Bellingham St. Patrick's Day Parade. The endeavor was led by myself, Jenny Schmidt, Casey Diggs and Jon Kull. Together, we convinced all eight breweries in town to co-host the first ever (80's themed) Bellingham Brewer's Ball with proceeds going to the annual community St. Patrick's Day Parade. Here's an embarrassing taste of some of our gorilla promotional work.

Save the Tails

Using spent grain from Boundary's brew facility, I worked with our Brewers and Kitchen Staff to develop a tasty treat for our beer/dog-loving customers. Doggy biscuits were sold in-house with all proceeds going towards the local Whatcom Human Society. 

Operation Warm

Supporting the Bellingham-Whatcom County Firefighters "Operation Warm" program, I helped promote this annual fundraiser.  The Pipes & Drums Benefit raises funds to help children in need by providing them with new warm coats. 

Washington Brewshed Alliance

The Washington Wild Brewshed Alliance helps people make the connection between conservation work protecting wild waters and superior downstream beer. I got Boundary Bay involved with the program and worked closely with the WBA to encourage more breweries to participate.
