I worked in corporate, national-level, high profile
marketing, advertising and creative services for well over a decade. It taught
me so much, I decided to leave it all behind and pave my own offbeat way—by
starting a marketing and design agency that specializes in promoting The Darkly-Inclined
As Immortal Marketing and Design CEO, I’ve been having a
blast working with filmmakers, musicians, artists and authors in strategic
cross-platform marketing, graphic design, motion graphics, website design/social
networking development and original music. To date, my work has been distributed
and viewed in millions of homes, from SyFy original (national) programming to
The CW Los Angeles, Chicago and San Francisco, as well as the film festival
circuit. My print design work has been on glorious full-color display in globally-distributed
publications like Gothic Beauty Magazine, Rue Morgue, Supernatural and Roman
Dirge’s “Lenore” comic book.
Just as in my profession, “in person,” I am a bona fide horror/genre
nerd, as well as a cult-cinemaphile and “supernatural TV” freak. My dreams
include climbing Mount Fuji, premiering myself fashionably on Harajuku Street, taking
a Nordic cruise and attending at least one Wacken Open Air Festival. I am also
an athlete-in-training for The Warrior Dash 2013.
I love black cats (I kinda collect them), I love my husband—FEARnet
music journalist Gregory S. Burkart—and I *heart* my incredible clients and
colleagues! Although it’s my job to remain thoroughly saturated in pop culture,
sub culture and all forms of media, I’m more of a book person by nature. However, I do grudgingly admit that once I start watching a great TV show, I do get pretty addicted. Current vises include Mad Men, Friday Night Lights (Netflix Streaming FTW!), Gossip Girl, Sherlock and The Vampire Diaries.
My pen name and web alter-ego is Jayda Steele. I may be
working on a book of my own… Maybe.
