B2B2C Project Management | Commercial Photography | Brand + Content Marketing
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!
I had the opportunity to visit amazing places around the world and work with a variety of companies and professionals.
As a part of the co-founding team at Dream Arc Creative, my role was to develop and implement procedures and manage creative production, team schedule, and vendor relations for clients, white label partners, and the company brand. You can view project examples at Broken Rice Media.
I always find comfort in traveling especially when I stop to reflect how tiny I am compared to this universe.
At the very least, there is one thing that you can learn from anyone you meet and in anything you do. That is why I enjoy collaborating with entrepreneurs and learning about their businesses.
I started a pro bono program to help local businesses with their marketing in 2020 when a lot of small business owners were struggling. A few of them reached out and I was able to answer their questions and create a
foundation for them to use.
Out of the two businesses that reached out, Lady Nails had the biggest change implementation that contributed to their customer base growth. Find the results here.
I'd love to meet you! You can learn more about the projects I am working on by visiting any of the links below.
