Hi. I'm Elizabeth MacLean. I'm a digital media and communication consultant. I'm also 'the face' behind EM Consulting. I hold a Ph.D. in Communication from The University of Texas at Austin, following an interest in exploring media that is produced for transnational audiences. This curiosity was likely brought about by my personal experience growing up as the daughter of American/Bolivian transplants in Venezuela, where I watched countless hours of imported television and film, 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 student's perspectives on the world and introduced new options for their careers and personal 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.
