I am a driven and goal oriented creative with business acumen. I have a background in engineering (electrical and software) and applied those skills as a business consultant in the entertainment industry. As a consultant, I oversaw software developers, gathered requirements, managed communications to stakeholders and leaders, and managed and tracked deadlines to ensure timely delivery. I worked on numerous projects and often had multiple individuals to report to, offering the opportunity to learn how to manage time, navigated timeline set-backs, and open channels to communication to ensure quick resolution to any open issues that arose.
I then struck out on my own to become a full-time freelance photographer, focusing on commercial work with brands. Depending on the needs of the client, I helped developed brand identity and visual language and matched my shooting style to align with the current branding of the client. I also produced many of my own shoots, finding models, styling, and scouting locations. I worked with several seasoned professionals in the industry, learning industry standards, top of the line techniques, and how to interact with the variety of personalities on set.
I'm now ready to jump on board with a company that's looking to drive its content to the next level. I'd like to be an integral part of the process and bring my talents, analytically and creatively, to a long term position and make a significant impact that allows the company and me to both grow.
