Overview

Hello there!
Photography, videography, editing, design...you name it, I love it. I'm a visual communicator by trade, perfectionist by nature, and I'm proud to be both. I graduated from Syracuse University with a degree in photojournalism, but along the way I've also studied multimedia and video storytelling as well as graphic design, ad design, and written journalism.
I currently work for a non-profit in the DC area called Ripple Effect Images (shameless self-promotion: you should look us up!) and I love it. But I'm just itching to do more...

Service Description

I would also like to say that I just took the 'proficiency exam' for Photoshop and if you're truly in the market for a competent visual storyteller, trust me when I say that certainly is not an adequate representation of my skills. Multiple choice tests just aren't my thing; I'm a visual learner for a reason!

On that note, I'm actually quite proficient in the Adobe design programs and I can offer my talents for:

Retail and corporate design (posters, pamphlets, business cards, etc.)
Graphic design & Illustration
Photo editing
Video editing (though I just got a new computer and don't have Final Cut installed yet!)
Editing for written works

I would love to design / work every piece to fit your personality, so a basic consultation before we kick off is really important to me. I'm not just going to create a boring and overused design for you!
