I am a photographer.
I LOVE TO TALK.
My home videos from the time I learned to speak to around age 6 make this embarrassingly evident. As annoying as this must have been for my parents, it’s a great quality to have now as I spend my days on the phone with clients, discussing their vision and needs and finding ways to make it happen.
I LOVE TO LEARN & CREATE.
Being educated at home left me to create phonics cards that were elaborately decorated, to learn basic math with rigidly color-coded M&M’s, and to read above my grade-level to my heart’s content. I delved into oil painting, sculpture, music, theater, sewing with a creative curiosity that could not be satisfied. As I got older I threw myself into more academic wanderings – researching, writing, speaking, debating, and working in local politics were all ways for me to learn about new things and think about how to apply my new knowledge in helpful and productive ways.
I LOVE TO BE CRAZY ORGANIZED.
See above re: color-coded M&Ms. Seriously, my mom found me in my room when I was 3-years-old organizing my sock drawer (a habit I wish I still had, because mine’s a mess now.) In the way any creative & organized person must, I strive to find a way to bring discipline into my creativity to produce compelling, fresh, and quality products for the people I work for.
