I am a straight shooting, can-do person who loves to talk to people. An Architect by profession, I considers myself a highly educated “problem solver” who is able find creative solutions to meet people’s needs. The first step in that process means listening to the clients and stakeholders for a project and facilitating the creation of priorities and goals that will direct the design process from beginning to end. My specialized background in corporate and community branding strategies assist clients in arriving at a powerful and cohesive place making strategy that impacts signage, graphics, public art, and the broad range of elements, materials, and fixtures that constitute the built environment. Over the past ten years, I have amassed a portfolio of awards and award winning projects.
Using my branding and communication experience, I have diversified my professional life to include work in both traditional and social media. I am a weekly contributor to “Jason & Alexis, with Jason Matheson” on myTalk107.1 for a segment called “Three’s Company.” I am also a weekly contributor to the television show “The Weekend Buzz” on Fox 9 for the segment “The Big Buzz.” I am active in social media and have a popular blog called JustJudyJudyJudy.com. Started in September of 2009, the blog is focused on giving readers news and events going on in and around the Twin Cities. The blog was featured by Twin Cities Spark as one of the best blogs in the Twin Cities. I also do social media for clients including; Intereum, David Fhima and the Preservation Alliance of Minnesota. This work includes blogging, Facebook, Twitter, Linked, YouTube and other aspects of social media marketing.
I have had numerous achievements and awards personally and for firms that I have worked at. These accomplishments are derived from my exceptional interpersonal and communication skills, strong attention to detail, and unparalleled work ethic. Key talents I can bring include; a design background that I use to come up with working solutions on projects, expertise to create fresh and innovative marketing materials, a natural gift for PR that gets results in the media, and an extensive network of people that I can leverage when needed. My reputation precedes me for listening and analyzing employee’s ideas and thoughts on creating an inspired and productive work environment.
