Professional Experience

Public relations, marketing and digital media specialist with over 14 years of working experience. My career began in public relations and marketing for high end retail stores such as Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue. I later took a sabbatical and traveled around Latin America, Europe and Asia. I photographed my travels and was later able to publish some of my photographs and write about my experiences. Coming back into the workforce I geared my communications background towards the arts, nonprofits and start up ventures. Some of my consulting work includes working with independent fashion designers, artists and entrepreneurs in branding, marketing and business development.
