Creator and curator of beautiful things, roamer and seeker, playlist maker, reader of books, lover of nature, dreamer of dreams, INFJ. I am a Creative Director with over 12 years of tested, high-level creative and fashion retail experience.

This is the collection of my journey. The intent for this site is to showcase some of my personal photography as well as display a small sample of my professional work with American Eagle Outfitters, Abercrombie & Fitch, Hollister Co, and 77Kids. Over the years I’ve managed and worked with many talented creatives on these projects and I’m very proud of the work we’ve accomplished.

I love creating powerful, well executed campaigns that resonate with todays youth. I enjoy carefully crafting and executing all creative elements to come together to form a consistent, cohesive, and visually impactful final product.
