about us

Creators come first. 

Full Bleed Rights represents award-winning, world-renowned creators like Ed Brubaker and Matt Fraction and emerging talent from around the world. We help navigate the sometimes treacherous world of licensing and intellectual property (translation, film/TV, and beyond) so our clients can reach their largest international audiences and do what they do best: make more art.

She loves the thrill of finding new talent and finding the perfect book for a publisher's catalogue. She is a fierce advocate for her clients, believing all creators should be well-compensated for their art.
