This space was created to help you you break away from your comfort zone so you can bring your thoughts, voice and ideas to life.
And I'm here to shake things up and inspire you to tell your story as a brand or individual, whether it's in words, through video, photos, products, travel or expressing yourself with your body (uh huh, honey).
A collection of raw thoughts from an untamed mind to help you grow as a creative.
Who am I?
Tl;dr: Consider this a cheeky invitation to think a little differently than you did thirty seconds ago.
I'm a travel writer, brand & media producer, and I want to help you tell your story. My goal is help others bring their creative vision (both big and small) to life and create new possibility through storytelling and expression.
But you'll also find a very different side of me in my Wild Thoughts section, because we are multilayered, complex beings that are both tame and wild, and I don't believe one side can exist without the other. That space that offers uncensored perspective, where my raw, uninhibited and sometimes provocative thoughts live. It's where I give myself permission to be an unapologetic savage through poetry, short stories and more in hopes that you'll be fearless to do the same.
Live creatively. Express boldly. Embrace your inner self to create your own reality. And that's only the beginning.
Your work should be your passion, should be your life-force. Let me help you get unstuck.
I want to inspire you in an unconventional way, and occasionally make you uncomfortable with my words. In fact, I really hope I do. But in the event I don't offend you, connect with me immediately so I can fix that right away.
"Right from the start, Melody provided creative and conceptual ideas that truly added value to our owner communications. We worked in a fast-faced, deadline-driven division with multiple priorities and overlapping projects, yet Melody was always able to stay on top of her workload and deliver content that was informative and engaging.
She is reliable, innovative, always meets her deadlines, and her articles consistently go above and beyond what we’ve asked for. I look forward to continue working with Melody on a freelance basis as she has proven to be an invaluable asset to our team and brand."
