I’m an award-winning producer, project manager, and creative operations leader who helps artists, organizations, and brands realize audacious goals. I love making things work better so that truly great work can be achieved.
Marrying an MBA and MFA, I’m bilingual in both ‘creative’ and ‘business’ and am passionate about elevating bold ideas, aligning strategy, and streamlining operations to drive progress. I specialize in bringing order to chaos and seeing opportunity where others see complexity – helping creative teams and innovators to rise above the day-to-day in order to accomplish their best work and deliver powerful stories that connect with audiences.
Currently, I’m Executive Producer & Studio Manager for renowned celebrity portrait photographer/director Martin Schoeller collaborating on business strategy as well as creative/strategy and driving it across media (print, motion, books, museum exhibitions, etc. and for clients such as KIA, Amazon, GQ, Vanity Fair, National Geographic, etc.) while keeping the studio running smoothly. Having also optimized creative teams at other production companies and in-house agencies (National Public Radio, Envy Works, etc.) and just finished my MBA, I’m excited to partner with innovative brands with growth ambitions, maximizing their impact and empowering radical gains.
FUN FACTS: Born in Wild and Wonderful West Virginia, I’m a home improvement junkie and serial optimist. I’ve never met a cocktail or dance party I didn’t like. And I’m honored to be most friends’ first call in case of the Zombie Apocalypse.

WHAT I’M READING: Ok, let’s be honest, I more frequently ‘listen’ (TIP: 2x speed!) than read but still… I love referring a good book (usually non-fiction) — here are some recent favorites. (Hit me with yours!)
