Grand Opening – Indulging Our Entrepreneurial Dream

Two years ago, our agency’s journey started in a bedroom where we worked from a loveseat. Surrounded by books, pages, and an assortment of creature comforts. The days were long, but we were working for ourselves and rolling the dice. We took a gamble and won. Today is the grand opening of our first office. Doubling down on this gamble of ours, we’re excited to see where it goes.

If you’re hungry, we’ve tapped our client Habanero’s Mexican Grill & Cantina for chips and salsa. We are also serving other refreshments including doughnuts, pretzel salad, and an assortment of drinks. We hope to see you here!

The Past & The Future

As we open the doors to this 650 square-foot office space in Oak Hill, WV, we reminisce on some of our past projects. The struggles and the wins. We are proud of our progress and curious where this will lead. Cecelia and I put a lot of time into painting and general renovations for this office. Juggling our projects with preparing our office served as a great team-building exercise for us.

Many may know our spot as a former barbershop and have recounted tales from their childhood. Located at 412 Central Avenue, our office is next door to Active Fitness Center! Across the road from us is a little league football field. Oak Hill is indeed a beautiful community on the verge of a renaissance of sorts. Many are investing their time and money into making Oak Hill an attraction to travelers.

Greetings! I'm the Creative Director at Starry Eyes Media, an Appalachian-based creative agency specializing in small government web and brand development. I enjoy taking a pragmatic approach to developing strategies and managing creative communications projects. In addition, I love helping small and rural communities transition into modern communication strategies by developing custom-tailored tools, such as interactive websites. Over the years, my passion for working with small businesses has evolved into a broader love of empowering the communities that sustain small businesses and their residents with digital tools that promote growth and tourism. More recently, I accepted an invitation to join the city council's Community Improvement Commission for the City of Princeton, WV. I began establishing my creative career at an early age, some nineteen years ago, when I jump-started my education in advertising and communications arts by attending Mercer County Technical Education Center before pursuing university studies. Since then, I've developed my unique skill set with a Bachelor of Arts in Advertising/Graphics Design, completed numerous freelance projects, and fully managed digital communications, branding, booking, and tour planning/managing for an indie band (while also writing and performing). Ultimately, I've helped hundreds of clients across numerous industries, including state and local government, nonprofits, food services, manufacturing/fabrication, and more. In 2015, I became the Lead Designer at the fresh and ambitious startup Starry Eyes Media. Since then, I've worn many hats, as one does with startups, but the one I've taken to heart the most is my current role as Creative Director. Though I still design and contribute to the creative process on many projects, my essential responsibilities include planning, developing, and maintaining the full complement of Starry Eyes' innovative services, internal communications systems, and processes. I also oversee the client journey cycle and a number of individual client relationships. If you have similar passions and endeavors, I welcome the opportunity to connect!
