I am Tomcatcolée.
Brand strategist. Graphic designer. Illustrator. I grew up in Charlotte North Carolina then left to pursue my passions and only recently returned to the Queen City. I have been freelance for 4 years now working with small to medium sized companies and musicians as a brand manager and social media consultant.
Traveling from infancy must have a permanent impact on a person. Because since childhood, I was enthralled at the chance to see new things, meet new people, and experience the unexpected. Even as a woman, well into adulthood now, I still find that same childlike joy from both the big and small nuances of life. But even more than the experience, I love the translation of an experience into an artistic expression. Specifically through photography, illustration, and/or design.
It's been the greatest adventure, migrating my passions in life into a side gig...and eventually into an actual business. I love what I do and I love building relationships and sharing those experiences in very relatable ways. I think the trick is not to miss the moments. In relationships, life, art, and even business...
I draw energy from the business relationships I've developed just as much as I do from the work itself. I'm not sure I believe in work/life balance, as much as loving what you do and making the most out of opportunities given.
