Hi, I'm
Callum Leneman.

About me

I grew up in a wood shop with twelve chickens and a pig named Frank.

After graduating with honors from SFSU's School of Design, I joined a boutique tech communications agency to learn how storytelling can change hearts and minds.​

In this time, I also had the opportunity to support fundraising and product launch campaigns for various organizations serving my Bay Area community and beyond.

Today, I'm applying my experience in design and communications to support organizations strengthening public health and equity.
