professional statement

A young and ambitious creative who is passionate about creating minimalistic and simplistic designs. Through her love of photography (both film and digital), lifestyle blogging, and writing, she has created and maintained her personal blog since the fall of 2016.

Madison originally created her blog through her Intro to Communications course at Saint Joseph’s University in Philadelphia, PA, and has maintained it ever since. With a strong following through her Instagram blogging account, Madison also connects with her readers through her personal Instagram, as she creates and shares inspiration, current favorites, and other inspiring content through her cohesive aesthetic and photography.

A strong believer in the power of creativity and social media marketing, Madison has maintained her handmade bracelet business, madauer beads, since the summer of 2017. By advertising and marketing her beads through her social media, as well as selling them in several shops along the East Coast, she has begun immersing herself in the realm of entrepreneurship.

Equipped with a creative eye for communicating effectively, she has gained experience in the workplace through her internships at Indigo Octopus, as well as Mount de Sales Academy, where she has interned as a Social Media / Marketing and Communications Creative.

Madison’s underlying passion for creativity, simplicity, and social media drives her vision for forward-thinking and artistic creation, a powerful duo for today’s digital era. To view even more of her work, visit Madison's Behance site.
