Charging waves, rocks, and pow around the world. So far? Mexico, Spain, Andorra, France, Chile, Argentina, Peru, and the USA.
Dani is a content director focusing every aspect of her work on the consumer experience. To create compelling brand stories, she considers how to approach online content, information design, and lead generation across all web, mobile, email, social, and digital media as part of a larger strategy.
Known for bringing to life beautiful cross-platform storytelling initiatives, she'll readily admit she's a bit of a process nerd that knows how to have fun. Whether freelancing with small clients or working on large team collaborations, she thrives in fast-paced environments where chaos brings forth her creativity.
She spent 2014/15 traveling through Peru, Argentina, and Chile (in her trusty Chilean Subaru) to live the biggest adventure of her life yet. Whether surfing in southern Chile, climbing in Argentinian Patagonia, freeriding in Chile, or learning about Andean culture in Peru, she learned a lot about the world and herself.
If the wildness of the outdoors inspires brands to create great products and people to embrace their inner adventurer, then the only part missing is the narrative. So let's craft it, because living inspired is the only way to live.
