Raw. Moving. Delightful.

Not bad for a midwestern art director who’s had one hell of a time. Danielle’s unique line of work predisposes her to excellent stories. In each of her talks, she balances her personal narrative against broad lessons for all industries. From her very humble (pie) beginnings to a brush with death, her talks are vulnerable and inspirational, hilarious yet poignant.
