A Noteworthy Partnership

Good Morning Ms. Chamberlain and Hiring Team,

I am excited and honored that you and the hiring team are still considering me for the position. Although this is a great opportunity for me, I must emphasize that this is also a remarkable opportunity for the Peace Corps.

My goal is to develop and implement strategies that outline the aesthetics and aspects of a public affairs’ masterpiece. Potentially over the top, potentially over reaching, but even if I do not accomplish my personal goals for the Peace Corps, I will have achieved much more than is expected.

“The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short; but in setting our aim too low and achieving our mark.” Michelangelo

I am eager to create, promote, analyze, pivot and repeat to achieve success. Public Affairs specialist must demonstrate aptitude and experience across a variety of fields. My experience encompasses design, media relations, marketing, negotiating, story-telling, multi-media content production and much more.

The information requested is displayed below. Please also take a look at my content and production portfolio. Contact me with any questions or concerns. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Talking Points – Art-Is-Umm …

  • Art-Is-Umm’s purpose is to present the value of creative therapies both from the parental and professional perspectives.
  • According to the Center for Disease Control about 1 in 88 children and more specifically 1 in 54 boys between the ages of 3 and 21 have Autism. Currently, over 660,000 children have an Autism diagnosis.
  • Art-Is-Umm: The Way To Heal is a documentary film that engages and enlightens viewers on Art and Music’s influence on children with Autism Spectrum Disorder. The film will also serve to prove Art and Music Therapy program’s relevance during early childhood development.
  • Art-Is-Umm explores the relationship between creative activities and childhood development by looking at the way the brain functions and through behavioral observations.
  • Contributions help to enhance both the quality and reach of the film. The message of Art-Is-Umm benefits parents, teachers and educational institutions. Many aspiring filmmakers fail to reach interested audience members due to a lack of funding. Our goal is to produce relevant films that question and support clinical research and behavioral therapies. After Art-Is-Umm: The Way To Heal screens the company intends to develop ongoing multimedia campaigns that inform audiences about Autism and mental disabilities.
  • Although the film is a journalistic exploration, the documentary stands firm in the belief that the Arts serve as an integral part of development for children diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder. Art-Is-Umm seeks to change the minds of non-believers. Rudimentary education is not enough. Art allows parents, teachers, and siblings to view and understand children on the spectrum from different vantage points.
  • Autism Spectrum Disorder is unique to each child. Although needs are unique encouraging creativity is more healing than promoting alienation.
  • As more families deal with the pressures inherent to the special needs community, our mission to find alternative methods to aid with coping and adjusting becomes more vital. This film intends to highlight the impact Art has on children diagnosed with Autism.
  • D.S. Artistry Productions is a cinematically dark production company that integrates creativity and business in film and music. Seamlessly incorporating entrepreneurship with art, D.S.A.P. crafts opportunities that support noble causes and transcends the boundaries of ingenuity.
  • The mission is to create multi-media entrepreneurial ventures that elevate noble causes by impacting public opinion via juxtaposed cinematically dark and poetically inspiring content.
