  It has been my great pleasure to work as a Creative Professional since 2001, wearing many hats in Content & Media Production, Creative Direction, Art Direction, Production Design, Wardrobe Styling, and Photography. 

 

  I began styling wardrobe and sets for local productions in Atlanta.  Working in a showroom at the Atlanta Apparel Mart, I met designers who appreciated my diversity and ability to sell.  They offered me opportunities to travel with them to work in Las Vegas, Chicago, and New York in their showrooms as well as assisting in the production of marketing materials.  Within a couple of years, I moved to New York and continued to work in multiple facets of the industry.  There I was offered and accepted international modeling contracts.  Over the next several years I stayed busy producing marketing content and working as an on-screen talent. My work took me to Milan, Athens, Barcelona, Sydney, Singapore, Osaka, Hong Kong, and Tokyo.

  

  In 2009, I decided to focus my energies on helping others to have what were for me incredible experiences working as an on-screen talent.  I started a boutique model management company, Independent Management, scouted a small board of diverse young women, and we passionately worked on developing their skills and portfolios.  With the collaboration of many talented photographers, designers, make up and hair stylists we produced content, look books, and campaigns.  

 

  After an intriguing holiday in St. Barth, I moved to the island in 2011 where for the next year I worked at a magazine as a producer, assistant art director,  photographer’s assistant, photographic retoucher, and other roles. 

 

  Returning to the United States in 2012, I spent some time in Georgia with family, bought my own professional camera, and started shooting.  I began working in television commercial production regularly and attending Emory with a focus on the Adobe Photo Suite.  The next several years were spent working between New York, Atlanta, and Miami producing fashion and beauty photo shoots and photographing events, interiors and reportage.    In 2016 I started getting involved with film teams that put me to work collaborating on multiple projects as a Producer, Art Director and Wardrobe Stylist for client’s television commercials, corporate videos, digital content, narrative shorts, and even the celebrated Cheddar Goblin insert in Panos Cosmatos’ film ‘Mandy’, celebrated at the Cannes Film Festival.
