I am a Photography Director and Visual Strategist with 15 years of experience spanning the digital and print realms. I specialize in conceptualizing images, providing creative direction and selecting appropriate talent to ensure visual challenges are met in innovative, provocative and eye-catching ways. Having built and cultivated relationships with a global network of emerging and established artists and image archives, I am comfortable managing any scope of project and also able to brainstorm and produce original photo illustrations as tailored image solutions. Working in concert with passionate imagemakers, my pictures reflect a refined vision for rich and impactful storytelling that has consistently led to audience retention and growth.
Over the years, I have worked with editorial brands ranging from Time Out New York to Money Magazine and TIME.com, produced book projects for clients including powerHouse Books and Oxford University Press and directed photography for marketing campaigns like the Composer Portraits series by Columbia University’s Miller Theatre. In 2014, I published a book of my own five-year project documenting modern-day gold prospectors in California, The New Forty-Niners, a Photo District News' Photo Annual Winner in the Books category.
I have served as a Portfolio Reviewer for the International Center for Photography, Art Directors Club, a Panelist for American Photographic Artists in New York, a repeat speaker at the College Media Association convention and a member of the Society for Publication Designers.
