Hello! My name is Kelly Chau.
At a young age, I have been interested in forms of self-expression such as
writing, music, photography, and so on. Inspired by stories of my late paternal grandfather pursuing photojournalism
during the sixties in Việt Nam and my late eldest paternal uncle having been a cải lương (Vietnamese folk opera)
singer, confirmation bias or not, I felt connected as to why I needed to pick up a microphone and camera.
We did not have much growing up so the luxurious karate or piano classes were out of the question. Eventually I was able to save up for a DSLR starter kit working part-time jobs and began offering photography services to professionals and local businesses. After graduating, I traveled for a few months while continued freelancing and worked at several small to mid-sized companies. I joined a franchise brokerage agency and implemented a structure within eight months that increased sales and decreased costs in the marketing department leading it to branch out to a new division. This experience helped me realize that I enjoy building structures, teams, and plans for businesses with creativity at the root. Staying innovative and resourceful to find solutions for teams and customers is encompassing of that.
My management background is in marketing with a focus on content production. I believe in being transparent about digital services to ensure fair pricing and scope of work without sacrificing quality. I am currently on a small business journey with Broken Rice Media LLC, continuing business development, and additional creative pursuits. Outside of that, I find joy spending time with my family and three dogs while working on personal projects and wellbeing.
Life is an ongoing change. All I know is that everyone faces adversity and life is fickle so it is important to live each day intentionally and that holds a different meaning for each person. My goal is to continue sharing stories that will hopefully inspire others to embrace self-expression as well as find ways to give back to the community with the little time I have on this earth.
Thanks for stopping by. I am located in the metro Atlanta area and available for travel or remote work. If you have questions or would like to collaborate, drop a message and we can grab (virtual) boba tea!
