Trish left everything on the table in third grade – especially her multiplications. Since then, she has earned a few notches on her Sick (sic) Sigma belt in corporate communications, educational publishing and instructional design.

With a focus on authentic and ethically-sourced content, Trish creates order out of chaos by whittling massive amounts of facts and ideas into a single cohesive form. From movable type to mobile phones, Trish puts every word in its place.

Trish Cleary

 Open-minded team player with
a BIG HEAD start in the
storytelling business. 

Media Influencer

First campaign resulted in more than
1,800,000 people receiving the gift of sight through corneal transplants.

Apollo Astronaut

Waitlisted for Apollo 13.  Still waiting to hear from my reach. (The Poloroid is of PJ, not me. I just said I was crew to get in.)

Fine Toons

Because stories don’t tell themselves.

I place high stakes in creating a medium that is both rare and well done.  I like a good story well told. That is the reason I am sometimes forced to tell them myself.
