The Clever Unicorn LLC Origin Story


I left my corporate TV career to be a creative services #UnicornBoss. Along with video work, I create custom websites, cover art, branding packages, and strategic social marketing campaigns.

My first and forever love is music and performing arts. I’ve sung in operas, musicals, and performed in plays. As a classically trained vocalist, I’ve contributed my voice and songwriting to film scores.

Humble Brags

My book trailer for the fantastical Ellen Datlow and her creeptastic anthology, The Doll Collection, premiered on the big screen in George R.R. Martin’s Jean Cocteau Cinema.

Credited as NiNi of the gothic industrial music duo Corvo, I wrote and sang the theme song (entitled “Home”) for Rachel Caine’s #1 Internationally Bestselling Morganville Vampires Series. I also edited/animated the book trailer.

You can hear my singing voice in the soundtrack to the SyFy original, Red Clover (which aired on SyFy as Leprechaun’s Revenge) to the tune of three million viewers just on debut night. The movie went on to air globally on various horror networks, and has a cult following as a fun B horror movie. I also animated the opening Irish limerick sequence (you’ll know it when you see it), and the opening titles sequence.

I also sang in the acclaimed Daywalt Horror web series, Camera Obscura, which was Academy Award-winner Jack Klugman’s last role in one stellar, iconic acting career.

Responsible for all department communications from FOX Network headquarters – this was before email! We received PAPER notifications that needed to be copied and distributed to various departments.

Keeper of the marketing library – we created most of our ads from PRINT materials sent by network/movie studios in physical press kits!
