Hiring a consultant is a very personal decision. Choosing a thought partner that fits your personality and work ethic will lead to greater success, so it is important to me that my clients feel trust and a true connection before we dive in. Helping artists hone in on their best work, define an attainable client-base, and refine their portfolios is my passion. High-fives and AH-HA! moments are my specialty.

I have two decades of experience in the photo industry as an editor, photographer, and art buyer for editorial, entertainment and advertising agencies. This has given me the expertise and the eye to guide artists with their portfolios and help brands strengthen their visual identity.

I am available for portfolio, website and social media consulting for photographers, stylists, businesses, or anyone looking to refine a visual presentation. My services also include mentoring artists in self-promotion and building valuable relationships with existing and future clients.

My services are available in-person or by remote (skype/phone). In person reviews are available in Austin, Texas, and twice yearly in New York City.

• Photography Review and Editing: Portfolios, Websites, Personal Projects, Books, Marketing, Social Media, RFPs and photography treatments.
