I have always wanted creativity to be a part of my every day life. With this as my goal, I attended UMass and received a Bachelor of Fine Arts. I followed that with a Professional Photography Certificate from BU. My first job out of school was as an assistant photographer at a footwear company. It was here that I discovered my passion for styling. I realized it was not so much taking the photograph that I loved, but instead, preparing the perfect image – deciding on the composition, colors and other complementary subjects that would become a part of the final image. I continued my career for several years with this company and through multiple roles, my favorite part has always been the footwear, the trends, and planning how to perfectly display the product for the world to see.
