Lean mean marketing machine. We are a small group of experts – each with our own specialties and decades of experience.

At Brave World Media we believe that no brand or destination message is successful without establishing an emotional connection with its audience. While we understand the importance of measuring and tracking success, we also know that people are not data. So while others define success through metrics, we focus on creating content that is authentic, compelling, beautiful, and memorable for real people. We offer visual services through graphic design, branding and web development, video production, and photography, as well as social media management and copywriting. Because we believe that every business, across all industries, can benefit from inclusive, diverse, and equitable marketing, these efforts are embedded in all the work we do.

Brave World Media is a certified Woman-owned, Minority-owned business by the Empire State Development of New York State and by the New York City Department of Small Business Services

Carol Cain – Principal / Founder​
Carol's media outreach and communications work is inspired by her time as an award-winning travel blogger with a global social media audience as @GirlGoneTravel. Before then, Carol had firmly established herself as an expert in public relations and communications, a career she has worked to build on for over 20 years. She has invaluable experience working in social media marketing, media outreach, campaign and marketing strategy, brand messaging, and crisis management. Her work is also inspired by her commitment to diversity and inclusion, long before these became marketing buzzwords. Her leadership, insightfulness, and years of experience have been instrumental in the success and growth of her clients and in shifting marketing narratives that align with and represent society as it looks and feels today. When not working to impact the media and marketing industries in positive ways, Carol volunteers her time as a Spanish-language interpreter for asylum seekers detained in the U.S. She most enjoys everyday life with her family and two puppies.
