Scintillate is about that spark: the idea you can’t stop talking about, the breakthrough moment that reinvigorates, the well-timed push that keeps your passion burning bright.

For the past ten years, I’ve worked with professional creatives — journalists, authors, interior designers, chefs, photographers, musicians, visual artists, entrepreneurs, academics, and more — to turn their passions into passion projects. Whether it’s a book idea, an event series, or business launch, Scintillate can help you realize your vision and make it a reality. Working together, we will craft a compelling message, identify influencers, ramp up visibility for you, your brand, or your business and fatten up your bottom line.

With deep connections in the digital media, publishing, lifestyle, and culinary worlds, Scintillate can help you reach (and win over!) a savvy, discriminating audience. Are you an emerging business owner ready to level up? We can help. Are you opening an eco-hotel, a co-op coffee shop, or some other fun hyphenate and looking to get noticed? We can help. Do you create incredible content but are unsure how to go about monetizing it? We can help. Are you ready to add firepower to your team?

Let’s talk.
