Web Designer & Photo Director
From a young age, I was immersed in the creative world. I grew up with a father who was a second unit director and being on movie sets was somewhat of the norm for me. My mother taught art classes and always supported my creativity. My family is a big part of what has sparked my journey in perusing being a photographer and photo director.
I have over 10 years of experience behind the camera, specializing in photography and in motion with a focus in the beauty and cosmetics market. My photographic expertise is extensive and ever-growing. In 2019 I became a Creative Director for Orlove Entertainment and I also currently work as a Photography Director for various companies throughout the United States.
Graphics and web design is something I picked up along the way and I love getting to be a part of the creative process that is helping bring someone's dream, passion and/or project to life.
Fun Fact: I also do stunts! I have a fervent love for extreme sports. I probably should come with a warning label.
