I am a creative consultant/coach. My clients come from many different backgrounds and come to me initially for various needs. But one comment I keep hearing over and over is that they are surprised that I can help them in so many areas: “You know how to do this—and THAT too?”
I can do this because I come from a background as a freelance art director, creative director, corporate trainer, and design teacher. I have been active in the fields of marketing, publishing, interactive (UI, UX, etc.) design, graphic design, programming, teaching, training, video and motion graphic production. I am a multimedia designer, published author, and have produced hundreds of instructional videos.

Aliyah helped a dream come true for me–– we worked together to launch my first book!
I am so grateful for her expertise and commitment to her work. She listens carefully while advising to ensure the best outcome and she stays focused to help reach deadlines. Thank you, Aliyah.
I have worked with Aliyah on editing and publishing a medical poster and she was great! Knowledgeable with professional publishing techniques and terminology. We worked with Adobe publishing products and she not only knows her way around these complex systems but taught me a lot along the way. I recommend her!
Since working with Aliyah, I have been hugely impressed with her extraordinary ability to innovatively create new channels of business thinking and out of the box approaches to radical and challenging ideas for enterprise. She has a warm and engaging temperament and a persistence to meet the orthodox head-on and root out those conscious and subconscious barriers which disrupt the flow of successful implementation of business and personal goals. Aliyah is a marvelous creativity coach. Before you know it, her subtle interventions will facilitate your ability to wake up in the morning newly inspired – having worked out for yourself why it was going wrong and what way to put it right.
Aliyah is a great teacher who has awakened strengths that have been dormant in me. My views on life have changed since working with her. Honestly, I was unsure what to do with my life or what direction to go. I felt lost and was looking for understanding and my truth on this planet. She listened and together we created my pathways for success and helped me understand that I have it in me to create whatever I want. Her gift for developing individuals who seek truth and understanding can benefit from her wisdom. I can assure you she has no intentions to steer anyone in a bad direction.
She is here to improve your direction in life and self-awareness. Her innovation has helped me to develop my vision for developing a system for a healthier sustainable living. My research in creating green sustainable communities or life support system will greatly benefit the planet and humanity.
Aliyah has been a great mentor and asset to my life and my purpose to help for the greater good. She has organized and restructured my philosophy for helping our planet and human family. I wish more people would only listen to what she has to say about helping you achieve your creative path to success. It is The Art of Creativity! — Enrique Leyva

Aliyah has a special gift in that she can get to the root of your personal and professional issues very quickly. She is able to open your eyes so that you see aspects of yourself which you have never before knew existed. By doing this, she then is able to work with you on a process of moving forward in life with a plan that is perfectly fulfilling to you. This is empowering because after Aliyah has worked with you, you are not only empowered to achieve a fullness of being in your life, but your newly found power lights up those around you.

I can’t say enough good things about working Aliyah Marr, she is inspirational, keeps me on track, has sound advice and is very knowledgeable in many aspects of the creative fields.

For the project I am working on, she was the right person and the right time, and I will hire her again as she is very easy to work with, is trustworthy and reliable and you get a lot of bang for your buck. I highly recommend her without reservation if you’re feeling stuck or need a coach for your life goals or some particular project.

Corporate Training | Adobe Software Trainer
Aliyah is a very creative and talented professional that is a joy to work with. During the time that I worked with her, she was ready to take on responsibility and she delivered results with excellence under last-minute pressure. I was impressed with her ability to quickly learn a new technology and share that knowledge with others. She is a class act and an accomplished writer as well.
The very first time I met Aliyah was at the ASR show in San Diego when she visited our booth. She was very passionate and had some great ideas to help us promote our fledgling company, 9:Fish Surfboards. Within a month or so, she had negotiated a TV advertising deal that put our products in front of target customers and at the same time truly strengthened our brand image.
The deal worked well for our company and we really owe it all to her. Not only that, but she continued to promote 9:Fish outside of the advertising deal by talking to local surfboard shops that she frequented, urging them to take a chance on our new surfboard brand.
Thanks to Aliyah’s tenacity and energetic evangelism, we landed a deal with a very important retailer. She says she did it because she believed in our company; we’re just glad she did it. I highly recommend Aliyah because of her creativity, salesmanship and incredible energy. She’s a great pleasure to work with and no one can resist her for long because she never gives up, no matter what!
Art Direction | Web Design
I find Aliyah to have a very original mind. She thinks outside of the box. She is particularly great at concept, but also very proficient and efficient in her technical executions. Her Flash work I found particularly cutting edge and engaging. Was very wowed by her website. Highly recommended.

Aliyah is highly creative, imaginative and artistically gifted. I have had the good fortune to have known her on her spiritual and life journey of transformation for many years now as well as recently contracting her to build my website for Lotus Light Healing. Aliyah is a powerful example of one who through life experience and creative vision is able to lead others as a transformative coach and succeed as a multi-media web designer, author, teacher, personal trainer, and motivational speaker.
