Hello, Bonjour, Marhaba!

My name is Isabelle - I am a Lebanese-American and lived my whole life between the two worlds. I am fluent in English, French and Arabic, with an accent in all three!

With a background in Film and Video Art studies and a demonstrated history working as a Graphic Designer in Marketing and Advertising, I link my love for storytelling with that of creating for solutions. In my free time, I volunteer my expertise in marketing strategy, art direction, and design to causes I feel passionate about.

In three words, I am...

Ambivert
