I’m a photo retoucher and video content producer which means I like to think about all the things. In my thoughts I like to connect a wide range of details about people, events, imagery, concepts, situations with all of the possibilities of life in each season. I’m also a mountain fanatic and lover of things moving, athletic, natural, wild, and free. I want to be always moving, part of the action, growing in my personal life and career.
I worked for years obsessing over minutia, retouching, scrutinizing ideas of perfection, societal constructs of beauty, pixel by pixel, for some of the world’s best photographers and brands. I’ve managed teams and get excited thinking about how lucky I’ve been to work with truly talented people I admire. I’ve also put in years of gritty, eye-straining hard work in soulless, dark corporate offices, pinned down to the workstation, following my desire to be the best beauty and fashion retoucher I could be.
Despite all of my dedication, drive, and passion to retouch my lifestyle led me to be a producer. Over and over again, relationships I formed with photographers as a post-production finisher kept urging me to get in on the pre-production planning action. Over the years I tested the waters, under the guidance of agency content directors and under the generous guidance from other producers, I learned how to step into the role. Pure luck, synchronistic events, and mostly some key people that gave me the opportunity took care of the rest.
My work in the past couple of years has become incredibly fulfilling and exciting. It often brings me to adventurous and beautiful locations and always involves complex logistics. I produce video and photo shoots on location for global brands including pre-production planning, technical scouting, locations permitting, talent management, onsite producing, and post production for brands, ad agencies, photographers, and magazines throughout the US. I’d love to hear how I can connect with you on your future projects.
