Summary

Edit
While attending university, I began an internship with international retailer Abercrombie & Fitch that evolved into an eight year career. After a succession of various managerial roles in Hawaii, California, Colorado, and throughout the Midwest, I promoted to International General Manager and transferred overseas to Europe. I lived and worked in Italy and the UK for 16 months, overseeing stores with 150-1200 employees. I then decided to break from the corporate world and pursue photography and long-term travel. I spent the next year backpacking solo through 5 continents and 19 countries. To document my travels, I created a travel blog that has since expanded into a photography-based small business. In my current role at Rootless Tree Photography, I collaborate with professional photographers, authors and creatives to develop social media strategy, manage and execute marketing initiatives, create content via Adobe Creative Suite, provide Apple platform support and develop systems for organization and office management. I am a creative at heart with a love for travel and the great outdoors. I speak three languages and hold a Bachelor's in Business Administration with an emphasis in Marketing and a minor in Spanish from the University of Hawaii at Manoa.
