Hi. I'm Elizabeth MacLean. I'm a digital media and communication consultant. I'm also 'the face' behind EM Consulting. I received my Ph.D. in Communication from The University of Texas at Austin, following my interest in exploring the cultural nuances and impact of media that is either produced for a transnational audience or that 'travels' from one country to another. This interest was brought about by having grown up bilingual in Venezuela (the daughter of American/Chilean transplants), where I watched endless hours of imported television, all dubbed into Spanish.
As a lifelong 'go-between,' (helping to bridge gaps between and across cultures and languages), I spent much of my career developing and managing international academic programs that enriched people's perspectives on the world, and opened up a wide range of new options for their careers and lives.
Finally, I also have a professional background in art direction and graphic design, which keeps me busy and, inevitably, spills over into other areas of my life. Right now I am obsessed with honing my illustration and digital photography skills during my free time -- when I'm not out walking this guy.
