Summary

Edit
Photography, copywriting, creative direction, and visual communication is my jam. I have been involved in all of these for the past five years on a freelance basis. I manage social media and website content for businesses around the San Diego area, shoot engagement and wedding photography, have my own photography business and second shoot for a wedding business and content design business called Dulcet Creative. I am looking for a career where I can work with a team and utilize my creative writing, photography, customer service, and also my ability to emotionally connect with people through visual communication. I recently finished up an internship at SunBum under the marketing team, with customer service responsibilities as well. I graduated from Chico State University in four years (actually quite a feat) with a major in Mass Communication. I am organized, able to handle high stress situations and grumpy people ( I also work in a coffee shop in Encinitas, which is why I say that). I am great at brainstorming, I am self driven, and am totally ready to work my butt off at a company I am proud to be at.

I paddle board every weekend and surf when the waves are good, and I love being happy and consistently stoked on life!
