A native of Chile with really deep Chicago roots, Pilar Clark and geekdom have been mutually exclusive since tight-rolled jeans and slap bracelets were in fashion, making it rather fitting she married a Star Wars nerd, made two nerdlets and started a movement to become the world’s okayest mom.
An award-winning writer, photographer, multimedia storyteller, and brand strategist with a strong background in advertising and journalism, Pilar has successfully developed freelance talent and managed independent contractors, in addition to leading social media campaigns from brainstorm phase to daily community management.
Her work has been featured on leading pop culture and parenting sites helmed by greats like Lucasfilm, Disney Interactive, and Fandango, to name a few; and she has been quoted in and on CNN, HLN, AP, Good Morning America, Huffington Post, and Martha Stewart, among others.
Pilar has been invited to share her expertise as an influencer at travel, entertainment and blogging conferences alongside super cool human beings like Sean Astin and Twitter’s Doug Bowman; and she is also the founder of two additional digital properties - The Wanderland Project and Dearest Geeks of Earth, which you’ll definitely want to read.
She is pretty firmly convinced her two kids are the best things she’s ever made (even when they talk back), and her husband’s Star Wars collection will always be bigger than yours. Just so you know.
This is her virtual portfolio. Get comfortable – you’re going to want to take a good look around.
