About Stargazer

The Synopsis

Branding and marketing today is a complex system of storytelling, networking and technology. With all the marketing channels and content to create it can be a lot for small businesses to maneuver and manage. Stargazer exists to navigate the confusion and complexities so small businesses can confidently communicate. More importantly, genuinely sell product and services in a way most aligned with the vision. It’s not a one size fits all approach. Nor is it a one-stop shop. Or a solo endeavor. 

Stargazer’s founder, Dana Escamilla, thrives on collaborating with clients to craft their unique brand story experience. This experience is grounded in positioning, strategic planning and a powerful digital domain.  Stargazer is also a collective resource for referring and partnering with creative, marketing and business specialists and technology solutions that will best serve the business needs.

First Person Notes

Here are a couple conversation starters…

Nurtures in Nature

I live in port town San Pedro, California. I’m fortunate to live in a scenic seaside town and spend my mornings walking and hiking about taking pictures of what inspires mewhich tends to be trees and flowers. Being outside with nature fuels me. I’m obsessed with trees. I can’t name them, but appreciate them none the less. Fall is my favorite season which has inspired many leaf-peeping travel adventures.

Assesses the Self

I love to learn more about what makes me tick and what can tick me off. So for those who are familiar with Myers Briggs, Enneagram, Western Astrology, Love Languages or Human Design:

  • ENFP

  • Enneagram 2 – The Helper

  • Aries Sun, Capricorn Moon, Gemini Rising

  • Acts of Service

  • Generator

What does this all mean? Admittedly, I haven’t studied any one “type” in depth, but my current distillation is… I’m an independent empathetic helper who thrives when creating and getting things done.
