If you ask my opinion - I am going to be honest even if it’s not what you want me to say.
I was born curious and am addicted to learning.
My clients say my biggest value is my eye for design and taste-level.
I grew up on a small hobby farm literally playing in the dirt.
I love people and always see the good in them first and foremost.
Don’t ask me where I want to be in 5 years unless you are good with me saying “happy & creative”.
I am an idea person.
Leaders I respect the most are not afraid of humility.
Everyone in my life will say I am ambitious, not afraid to take risks, and never let my failures defeat me.
I have submerged myself in many different areas of creative over the years. I started as a lifestyle/athletic model with Sports + Lifestyle Unlimited and moved into photo styling and creative direction with major athletic apparel brands and independent photographers. This is where I learned my passion for brand and product storytelling! I now work professionally as a Project Account Manager at a photography studio where I work with my clients to bring their brand story to life through photo and video content! My goal is to continue growing my career in the fashion/apparel industry and bring brands to life through storytelling!
