With over 25 years working in communications, Melissa is a driven entrepreneur and experienced digital artist who believes her clients deserve the best possible experience and results.
Melissa graduated from NYC’s Parson’s School of Design in the early ’90s with a degree in fine art – you know, fine art like those pretty pictures hanging on your walls. She quickly discovered that she liked to eat, so she purchased her first Apple computer in 1992. Melissa proceeded to teach herself website development in a time when there were less than 10,000 websites total! She still has her very first email address from 1994…can you say, digital hoarder?
Along the way Melissa worked at print shops, branding, and marketing agencies around New York City and Denver where she served Fortune 500 real estate developers, foreign automakers, and government health service agencies. Melissa performed alongside C-suite executives as an eMedia Director, honing her skills in branding, communications, graphic design, website development, and business development. In 2004, she joined her business partner at All Terrain Studios.
Long ago Melissa earned the nickname the Digital Diva by her peers for her ability to figure out complex digital topics and explain them in plain English. More recently a client referred to her as the Website Whisperer because she can coax a website to do whatever her client needs.
When Melissa is not developing websites, editing episodic broadcast programs, or designing logos, she enjoys painting pretty pictures (gotta use that degree!), pretending to snowboard, trail running as much as possible, and throwing the squeaky toy for her puppy. Throwing that annoying squeaky thing far, far, far away.
