About RJH

long story, short. 

i'm a full-time ideas girl, part-time words girl.

i thought the future would be cooler. so i work to make it as cool as mini-rita thought it would be.

i was born and raised in miami. think: cuban medianoche sandwiches, pastel art deco aesthetics, and the occasional destructive hurricane.

i soon moved to beirut where i studied political science, wrote essays for money, and partied. those three activities led to my realization that "copywriting" is a thing, and was incidentally just the thing i wanted to do. found myself living the agency life while loving every second of its miserably restless existence.

went on to win big businesses and awards.
