I didn’t always know what I wanted to do, but I always knew it would be something creative. 

 

Like most young adults, I felt a bit lost in my early twenties. To cope, I booked a ticket to Europe and spent a glorious Summer snapping photos of coastal towns and filling up on firewood pizza and wine.

Little did I know, those photographs would win me a once in a lifetime experience...

with a mega travel influencer! The next Summer I ventured out on a  10 day trip with Yacht Week to sail along the coast of Italy, alongside one of the most successful women in the travel influencer space. It was a dream come true! I soaked up every bit of creative knowledge I could from her and came back home with a mission. 

I upgraded my camera, invested in editing software and began learning all I could about photography.

I didn't stop there. I expanded to my creative skillset to include: 

 

  • Graphic Design

  • Social Media Marketing

  • Digital Strategy

  • Content Creation

  • Filmmaking

  • Sound Design

  • Drone Photography and Video

  • + more

I’m driven by that same creative spark I discovered while sailing the Italian coastline, only now I want to create for you! 

 

Let me know what you need and I'll do everything I can to exceed your expectations.

These days...
