Meet Nhu

I am a Creative Director, Multimedia Designer & Social Activist based in Washington, D.C., currently working full-time at Fenton, a social change agency.

For as long as I can remember, I’ve always had a need to express myself creatively. I would spend countless hours as a child attempting to master one medium after another; whether it was drawing, painting, singing, writing, theater, piano…I just couldn’t get enough! The day I picked up my first camera was when I truly found my calling and introduction to the world of multimedia and design. I started my photography business at the ripe age of 15 and haven’t turned back since.

With over twelve years of professional and freelance experience, I am constantly picking up new skills and tools to produce comprehensive and well-rounded creative solutions. I’ve worked both in in-house and agency environments and am extremely adaptable and quick on my feet. I am used to wearing many hats and taking on untraditional roles that may require myself to step outside of my comfort zone. (Copywriting? Who is she?)

The endless possibilities design has to offer constantly feed my passion to improve everyday, in and outside of the office. I am always looking for new opportunities and making new connections so let’s get in touch!
