Hannah Brechner has always loved that her family communicates via handwritten letters. In October of 2010, she began writing love letters intended for strangers and tucking them away in libraries and cafes across New York City, for people to randomly discover.

In addition, Brencher works as a copywriter and creative consultant, helping brands inject human touches into their communications plans.
