Ciao I’m Leslie Sharpe. Apologies in advance for the industry jargon and mild philosophy you’re about to read. But hey, at least you’ll get a good sense of the person that could be sitting within earshot of you for a few days, weeks, months or years.
In everything I do I seek the line between what I know and what I don’t. I believe this is where the most unexpected outcomes are discovered. I enjoy acquiring new skills and extra dimensions of understanding to explore even deeper.
I’ve got plus-minus 10 years experience in platform and campaign thinking for local and global brands across the spectrum of traditional and non-traditional. I’m passionate about solving hard problems with compelling narratives grounded in strong truths that vibrate into our culture.
These days I tend to lean towards social engagement, content and activation ideas that real people interact with in tangible ways with an earned PR outcome. I’d call myself a ‘creative generalist’ equally comfortable as a thinker, art director, writer, designer, directing content and long rants about philosophy and existentialism.
In my spare time I carry a camera most places, seek out interesting people, practice free-thought through as many mediums as I can, continuously tweak this bio page, and practice mindfulness and meditation daily which binds every element in my life together ...and try to avoid dairy.
