Hi! 
I'm Jainee.

Headshot21.jpg

For a long time, I introduced myself as a filmmaker.

I've also been a teacher.

A designer.

An entrepreneur. 

Now, I embody all of these identities because they are all connected. I'm a hybrid, if you will—a multidisciplinary, creative strategist. 

My diverse background has defined my ability to take unformed ideas and transform them into compelling stories.

I'd love to help you tell yours.

what I do

I work with startups, nonprofits, and established businesses to leverage stories as a strategic tool to advance important missions. Effective storytelling and design drives action towards sales initiatives, charitable giving, and mobilizing customers. Whether it's web design, branding, or writing, I work to build genuine emotional connections that spark a lasting impression with your audience. Having worked in capital strategy and executive leadership, I also offer organizational strategy for founders looking for support in the planning, launch, and execution of new brands or initiatives. Contact me here to learn how we can work together. 

my story

I hold a Bachelors of Science in Digital Media Production from the Art Institute of Portland and have worked extensively in the film and media industries on award-winning documentaries, music videos, and commercial productions. I've worked with the big guys and gals (Nike, Laika, Patagonia), and the little guys and gals (small business owners, wellness practitioners, farmers, and teachers). Throughout my career, I've helped hundreds of people tell their stories through the art of digital media and design. 

I've been featured in Outside Magazine, Forbes, Adventure Journal, B the Change Media, and I'm the co-founder of Wylder, the first female-founded benefit corporation in the state of Utah. I've cultivated my entrepreneurial spirit by building 3 businesses, while also bringing two 501(c)(3) non-profits to life. Speaking at Fast Company's Innovation Festival, Silicon Slopes StartFest, and on numerous leadership panels at Outdoor Retailer were career highlights for me, and I love sharing my own story. I'm captivated by the ever-evolving intersection of creativity, mindfulness, and entrepreneurship. I've dedicated my career to building and amplifying businesses and organizations tackling inequity, sustainability, and regenerative enterprise.

I love working with artists and entrepreneurs and I've often marveled at how any of us keep churning out art, build resilient businesses, form effective movements, and endeavor to create a better world when failure feels so imminent. I think the real wonder that lies within all humans, found in our very DNA, is the propensity to mess up slightly. To blunder. To mutate. And then, to adapt. Without these attributes, we would still be anaerobic bacteria, so it's imperative that we confront issues head on with an adaptive approach in order to truly grow and learn. The most effective rebels and changemakers seem to be those dedicated to constant evolution and continued iteration. Explore my personal blog to learn more about my thoughts on this.

TESTIMONIAL

"We called Jainee the "meaning miner". She can sift through complicated, jargon-y language and transform it into inspiring, beautiful prose. Yes, she has superpowers in helping you explain what you do clearly and compellingly. But working with Jainee is not just about clear and compelling language or branding. She elevates your work, finding and creating new value that inspires you and your audience.

 

Whether you are just starting something, or you're re-designing or upgrading an existing project, Jainee is a dream partner. Trust her to help you with the early stages of a project, to make sense of what you're trying to say. Trust her with taking something that is already off the ground, to bring the best of what you do into focus. Trust her with re-designs or upgrades, brand or product launches, or any project where the experience just has to be perfect. She will bring a magic to anything and anyone she touches. And working with her is just so damn fun."

media & storytelling

I have worked as a Producer, Director, and Coordinator for commercial, documentary, animated, and feature-length films. I've slogged up steep mountains to get that perfect dawn light, ran through swamps and jungles for a documentary in Puerto Rico, and wrangled tiny puppets for the stop-motion film, Coraline. I understand the unique challenges photographers and film crews face and bring over a decade of experience in planning and executing high-integrity work. As a writer/director, I strive to construct stories that provoke an audience towards meaningful action.
