"Working with Heather is pure joy. A great listener, Heather immediately understood my design aesthetic, mission and practical needs and confidently turned my dream into a reality - adding her own special touches and offering great advice along the way. She is clear, responsible and always incredibly attentive to my requests and my schedule. She takes feedback very well and is patient and understanding when we make changes or alterations. Her work is absolutely gorgeous! A talented designer and a clear communicator, I would recommend Heather for any type of design work, photography or video production."
-Brittany Wood Nickerson, Thyme Herbal
"Working with Heather made producing my calendar easy and fun! She communicated so clearly about all of the work she was doing and what she needed from me. She was able to take my verbally articulated image of the final outcome as well as the photographs we were working with and create a product that was everything I had envisioned and more. Heather's service is impeccable and her response time and communication was extremely professional. For everything we created together, she mocked up a few options and was always more than happy to go back to the drawing table until I was 100% satisfied. Working with her is a joy!"
-Roxanne Dusk Crocker, OMP Pie Productions
"SOME KIND OF BLOODY WIZARD."
-Evan D. Williams, Sixteen Feathers
"I felt overwhelmed by the necessary steps of starting to revamp my website with someone. Even making the new email seemed daunting. (Silly, I know.) Having Heather’s pleasant, quick feed back to my questions, and her clear outlines made it seem very manageable, even in the small bits of time I had after work. I really appreciated how Heather was able to take my jumbled thoughts, and deliver back to me what I was hoping to convey. Not to mention, the pricing was fantastic, the communication was warm and straightforward, and I got the final result I was hoping for. No drama, no hassle, just solid work done right."
-Jill Hoyle Frasier, Jill Frasier Photography
"Heather not only did a fantastic job with our wedding photos, but was a perfect presence. She was quiet, yet very helpful, thorough and present without being intense or overwhelming. And brides can be nuts, but she was cool, calm, and collected. Oh and she drove me to the beach, so that was great!"
-Jenessa Fisk, Newlywed
My work revolves around inspiring others to reconnect with the natural world, themselves and holistic modalities. With one foot immersed in technology and the other in holistic wellness, I hope to create a long line of work based around inspiring the spirit, mindfulness, dignity, interconnection, self care and the stories behind the people spreading their knowledge and passion about these topics.
With that said, my interest is not solely in holistic wellness, but in helping passionate people bring their projects to life. In such a multi-dimensional tech world, I find immense satisfaction in helping others fill in the technical and creative blanks. Whether that be sprinkling in a video and new photos to an established website, updating an old logo, or walking someone through the steps of starting their own podcast, the endless possibilities are what keep me interested and excited to work with a diverse range of client needs.
I started working at a television station in my early teens and never looked back. After completing a degree in Video Production and Audio Engineering at Ithaca College, as well as minoring in Integrative Holistic Medicine, I put my audio-visual skills to work in places as diverse as New York, Los Angeles, Boston, Western Massachusetts and Maine, where I currently reside.
My work has shown up in all kinds of nooks and crannies, including Prefix Magazine, Kanine Records, FM Television, multiple film festivals and noted music blogs. My areas of expertise include Adobe Creative Suite, Final Cut Studio, Google Earth Pro, media management and social media platforms.
