Because three shots is better than two. Romance copy for new product launch.


Tokyo Roast

What is the equivalent coffee to Japan that Pike Place is to Seattle? Tokyo Roast.

To go along with the opening of the Tokyo Roastery, we were tasked with creating the first coffee to ever be roasted in Japan, for Japan, by Starbucks.

Design: Ana Van Huben

Romance, Side of Bag:  Since opening our first store in Ginza in 1996, we’ve been proud to be a part of Japan’s longstanding coffee culture. Tokyo Roast continues this tradition with deeply earthy Sumatran beans and vibrant Latin American coffees—all diligently cared for, from cultivation to when they are blended and roasted at our Tokyo Starbucks Reserve™ Roastery by our Japanese coffee experts. We’re delighted to introduce this exquisite coffee. Crafted here, just for you.

Blonde Espresso.

A twist on the dark coffee / espresso game that Starbucks has always played so well.

I had the opportunity to be a part of the creative team working with 72 & Sunny LA on this project.

The outcome: a new take on a classic espresso.


Costco Dark Roast

I had the privilege (and trust placed in me, for some reason) of getting to write and name for the new Starbucks Costco Dark Roast coffee. 

The outcome: Vista Verde


Kati Kati Blend, Summer 2018 Update.

Worked closely with a designer to meld the copy and design cohesively for this summertime blend.


Here's another!

The ask: A gift certificate booklet for LATAM distribution. Keep the elevated Starbucks style.

Copy: Me

Design: Eva Grate


And another...

The ask: Write package copy for the new Been There Mug Series. Keep the copy adventurous and upbeat. Share it, keep it, own it.
