Background and Bio

BACKGROUND

I am a creative leader with experience in digital marketing, publishing and photo art direction. For two decades, I have elevated brand awareness through engaging imagery and relatable content. I believe strong creative direction is rooted in authentic communication. My goal is always to bring out the strengths of my team to create a quality brand message that aligns with the customer.

I've worked with luxury fashion and beauty brands, luxury events and upscale auction firms, in both B2B and B2C environments, which has enabled me to develop a trained eye for design, fashion, marketing, branding and fine art. My skill set and work ethic has helped both private and corporate clients grow their revenue and revamp their marketing strategies with stellar results.

 

My professional dalliances also include podcasting, copy editing, creative writing, video editing, and appearing as a spokesperson for animal welfare.

For leisure, I enjoy creating fine art, cooking and exploring the outdoors.
