Hey there! Welcome to my little corner of the internet, whether you happened upon it by chance or were on a mission to see my work. Regardless, I’m excited for you to learn more about me and to see all I’ve created here. I hope you like what you see!


Having always been branded as the “creative child,” it’s no wonder I ended up as a Creator. From countless art classes, dance lessons, and stacks of filled journals, I always put my imagination first and let it guide me through life. 


After graduating high school in a small town in New Jersey, I packed up my things and settled down in an even smaller town in The-Middle-of-Nowhere, Virginia, to attend Virginia Tech (that’s Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, fyi) as a Hospitality & Tourism major. There, I jumped from the idea of wanting to work as a hotel manager, to a cruise entertainment director, to a festival producer, and finally settled on marketing management after adding a second major.


Halfway through college, I picked up my mom’s old camera (a spicy Nikon D3000) and took it to a concert that my organization was programming. I had offered to take photos of the event with the intention of helping to build our social media presence. Long story short, I fell in love with photography, and with social media management, and became immersed in both of them for the rest of my college career.
