Danelle Marqui Brown

Founder / Liberal Artist

Full STEAM Ahead—Danelle Marqui Brown founded By Mnemosyne (BY "M") in 2013, as an independent practice, while being a freelancer and part-time graduate student at Harvard. Her intention was to bridge the creative gaps between the arts, sciences, and business, for the benefit of industries and society. According to each projects' scope, when necessary, collaborative teams of experts, creatives, and enthusiast are curated to render clients' needs to life. For example, one project may require the underwater film artistry of a skilled filmmaker, while another may need a translator, or a scientist.


Danelle is an interdisciplinary liberal artist. She holds a Master of Liberal Arts degree, with a concentration in the history of science, technology and medicine, from the Harvard Extension School (HES); a professional certificate in Religious Studies and Education through a partnership with the Harvard Divinity School (HDS) and HES; and a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, with a concentration in interior design and sustainability, from the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT). 


With over 15 years of experience, Danelle has been a creative and strategist for several leading communications and branding agencies (e.g. Edelman, Jack Morton Worldwide, and the Seventh Art Group); worked on accounts in various sectors such as architecture, beauty, fashion, consumer goods, education, events, film, food, non-profits, real estate, and tech; and created 500+ pitch and presentation decks for Fortune 500 clients, C-level executives, pioneering start-ups, legacy brands, and initiatives. She has been a catalyst for account wins, sponsorship, investments, brand launches, and special events.


Parallel to being a multidisciplinary creative, she moonlighted as a birth doula (trained and certified by DONA International) from 2007-2012. Danelle is an associate member of the New York Academy of Medicine; serves on The Music & Health Clinic Steering Committee for The Louis Armstrong Center for Music & Medicine; and has served as a mentor for various youth programs via The Global STEM Alliance, an ambassador for the New York Academy of Sciences, and a teaching assistant through the Religious Literacy Project at Harvard University.
