Empowering, full-service career guidance and support for photographers and artists
Helping artists move from apprehension to confidence brings me pure joy.
As a photographer, editor, agent and art buyer with more than 20 years of professional experience, I know that fresh eyes can help you see your work in a new light.
I recognize that you are unique, and that your art is central to your being. I don’t take that for granted. I’m with you every step of the way as we assess your needs, make a plan and chart your path to success—on your terms.
1. We start with a complimentary consultation call to make sure we click.
2. If it’s a match, we work together to define your goals, market and vision.
3. I provide a thorough review of your portfolio and brand and make recommendations.
4. You get a customized plan for reaching your ideal clients with a true ally at your side, advising and encouraging you along the way.
While studying photography at Parsons School of Design in New York City, I began an internship at Elle Decor magazine and was later hired on as a photo editor. In 1999 I continued my career as photo editor for MTV Networks Online, where I produced photography for shows like “Pimp My Ride” and “Laguna Beach”, and managed real-time photo coverage of the annual MTV Video Music Awards. (I even hired myself once to photograph Beyoncé!)
In 2008 I began working as an art buyer and digital asset manager for several advertising agencies. After close to a decade in that industry, I realized my true passion was in mentoring artists directly, so I left to open my own artist representation agency and continue my work as an editor, portfolio consultant, and agent representing artists all over the United States.
I can honestly say that I truly love what I do.
