You could call me well-rounded...
My love of and experience in media comes in all forms. I started as a designer, photographer and columnist for two high school newspapers and haven't slowed down since.
I love every aspect of print and digital publications and eagerly involve myself in as much as I can. I find it so valuable for a creative team to understand editorial and for writers/editors to understand design/photography. Because of this, I try to read the accompanying text for every image I produce and I supply art for every article I write.
I have experience working at:
magazines, newspapers and websites
national and regional
consumer and B2B
women's, men's, travel, bridal and fitness
I have worked in the photo departments of eight national publications, on both print and digital teams.
Some of my skills include:
Research (stock, lifestyle, celebrity, fashion/beauty)
Editing and retouching
Shoot production (still life & model)
Administrative (rates, credits, invoices, releases, insurance, expenses)
I have worked in the editorial departments of one national and one regional publication, and contribute to others on a freelance basis.
