SUMMARY OF QUALIFICATIONS
A photographer since the age of 16. A spirited entrepreneur since the age of 18. The tasks placed on these shoulders are varied: In any moment I must secure the trust of my audience in an environment that no one has seen before and capture their experience for a photographic lifetime.
This doesn’t happen just by clicking a camera button. This happens because a photographer is fully present in the moment and is able to capture an honest moment. Opportunity knocked in Brooklyn, and I made a swift decision to train and remotely support a local photographer to keep my Detroit business running. The job of an entrepreneur is to make shit happen every single hour of every day. This means I have:
- been the go-to peacemaker in professional environments from a young age
- adapted and improved in haphazardly managed events
- conducted on-site relationship management for clients
- filled roles such as stand-in art director; project manager; events coordinator; and instructor
