Professional Experience

A creative and resourceful photo editor, I have researched and readied for production more than 500 images for the recently published Encyclopedia of New Jersey. Attention to detail and a knowledge of how to work with repositories in obtaining these images were a large part of this freelance position. Maintaining a database, writing captions, and credit lines also helped to make this scholarly publication a well-received and respected history of the state of New Jersey.
