What do you do?

I help brands ideate content ranging from brand identity to creative for marketing purposes. From there, I work to create content from start to finish (working with graphic designers, shooting photo, video, etc…) and get it ready to share with the world.

How do you stand out from other people in your field?

Coming from agency world, I’ve worked with a variety of different types of clients and worn many different hats when it comes to their needs. I am a part of the initial pitch process, which involves ideating big picture ideas. I also work directly with design and animation teams to create content, and then present ideas/creative directly to the client. My days consists of communicating between multiple teams and staying organized through these processes.

If you have multiple jobs and/or skills, which one do you wish you could do more often?

I would love to work in-house with brands that I’m passionate about. I love collaborating with all types of creatives as well! The idea of working with fellow creatives in-house for a brand focused on anything “lifestyle” is right up my alley (think interiors, sustainable fashion, beauty, travel, etc...). 

I’ve also recently started to shoot and edit video and am hoping to keep trying my hand at that! Example below:


What are you working on right now?

I’m currently working with a team to create content for two social channels for Disney. I’m also working on my personal fragrance line (I have three so far)!


What have you been wanting to learn more about?

I would love to learn more from different types of creatives and what inspires them. I learn something new with each different project I work on and it’s something I always look forward to!

What are you putting off right now? 

I love to paint watercolors and I haven’t had the chance to do that in awhile. I paint the moon and planets in my free time.

If you could hire someone for $20/hour, what would you have them do to make your day easier?

Honestly? Give me a shoulder massage, but that’s worth way more than $20 an hour. 

What are all the tools (digital or physical) you use on a regular basis?

My fujifilm x-pro2 camera, adobe suite, my iPhone, all things google, and my hands!

If you could talk to an expert to gain more insight on something, what would it be about? 

I would absolutely love to talk to Elon Musk. If I could understand even an ounce of how his brain works, I feel like I could change the world too.

What kind of opportunities/projects are you looking for?

I’m looking for creative projects of all kinds: creative direction, art direction, styling, shooting photo/video, you name it. I want to help!

Describe your ideal client/job/collaboration. 

Anyone with a positive mindset and a love for collaboration!

What are your deal breakers? 



What is your hourly rate, retainer, or salary range?

It depends on the client/project, but I’m open to discussing this on a per project basis.

How should someone approach you about working with you?
