Tell us about yourself

I got my start with photography when I was a teenager at summer camp. My camp had a dark room and a set of cameras, and I spent a lot of my time there falling in love with the practice of photography. From there, I decided to pursue a BFA from the Rochester Institute of Technology in Advertising Photography. My early career started in the outdoor industry managing photo, video, and marketing projects. I quickly realized that what I was doing in my full-time jobs was something that I could do on my own and have a lot of fun doing it. I am motivated by helping brands and clients tell their stories by bringing an idea that's just on paper to life.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

My biggest accomplishment is getting to work with brands like The North Face, RIVIAN, Altra Running, and more!

What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?

One of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner is finding people you like and trust to work with.

What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?

  1. You can do it.
  2. Get a good bookkeeper.
  3. Say no to things that don't align with your beliefs.

Where can people find you and your business?
