Designer. Photographer. Creative Director. Producer. Professional Problem Solver.
All of these words are used to describe the wide range of skills I’ve garnered over the last 15 years. I've worked in a wide variety of industries from Marketing/Advertising, Media/Entertainment, Digital, Print, News, Politics, Non-Profit, to Fundraising and everything in-between. Clients have included Google, VMware, Cisco, Disney, Fox Searchlight, Plex, ServiceNow, EA, Fox, Intel, IBM, and more. Over those years, I’ve noticed a great need for a personable experience while looking for a one-stop shop that can help with all business needs surrounding rich media, design, photography, branding and marketing. It was with those needs in mind that I built üme creative.
I reside just outside of Baltimore with my husband and two brilliant kids. I enjoy working with my hands and DIY projects of all kinds, traveling, true crime, strong coffee, thrifting, genealogy, Alan Watts lectures, and good podcasts. In my spare time I also enjoy running, hiking, gardening, interior design, reading and writing.
Having started college at the age of 16, after being homeschooled for most of my life, allowed me the opportunity to explore creative and educational options at a young age without the burden and sometimes stifling nature of adulthood. I attribute this to one of the main reasons I was able to find my passion at such a young age, in turn allowing me to explore unbounded creativity and develop into the dedicated and passionate artist that I am today.
I look forward to working with you and achieve your vision!
Photographer. Retoucher. Marketing Guru. Business Consultant. Writer. Therapist.
I'm a Philadelphia native residing in Baltimore with a background in Communications with a Bachelors's in Advertising and an MBA. Being self-taught always kept me pretty humble since the only way I seem to know how to learn something is the hard way. Along with photography, I'm also an Adjunct Professor at the University of Baltimore teaching Entrepreneurship & Digital Marketing, hosted a podcast called The Angry Millennial, and a contributor for e-Counseling.com, BorrowLenses, & Petapixel.
More recently, my path has taken me into mental health full-time. I am a graduate of Northwestern University, with a Master’s in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, and working as a therapist running my own private practice, Grey Matter Counseling & Consulting. I’m also an Adjunct Professor at Towson University within the Psychology Department.
With mental health advocacy being a cause that is near to my heart, I founded Creatives Aga;nst Depression—an initiative created to start a larger conversation about mental health awareness in the US to help erase the stigma behind depression, anxiety, & suicide, especially in the arts community.
