As a choreographer, movement coach, and creative director, I've realized my unique skill sets can be applied to the field of brand strategy! My background in creating dynamic, visually striking movement and choreography is also used to help brands & clients develop brand campaigns that are visually appealing and memorable. My understanding of creative process and the ability to collaborate with teams have been extremely valuable in developing brand strategies that are cohesive and effective. Additionally, my experience in coaching and directing performers are useful in helping brands communicate their brand messages through various channels plus digital & live experiences, including social media, events, and marketing content. By combining my experience in the arts with my skills in strategy and communication, I became a holistic brand strategist who helps companies build strong and impactful brands & experiences!
Though her credits for influential companies and people stack high, Ellen's most important job is as mom to her awesome 7-year old daughter. The two adventure through life together from Los Angeles by creating art from their experiences!
"I think that when you're contained like that as an Asian-American and you find something like hip-hop, it changes your life."
"[I] literally only have one life to live and that I started dancing because it took me away from my problems growing up."
