EXPERIENCE

2017-CURRENT

SELF EMPLOYED
Social media manager, photographer, sales, marketing, event management, graphic designer, web designer, public relations, video editor, copywriter, event planner and more.

Social Media Manager: Have managed up to 10 social media accounts at once for various local businesses from a foster care nonprofit, @stjosephchildrenshome to a popular watering hole, @galaxiebar. I learn about their mission and goals so I can properly represent their voice, visual aesthetic, and culture.

Photographer: Take custom stock photos that is special to each client and shines them in their best lighting. One example being the national gender-neutral clothing company, @blofishclothing. I promote inclusivity and actively search for models that are BIPOC, LGBTQ+, all body sizes, and all abilities.

Sales & Marketing: With entrepreneurship comes a personal sales attitude. Not only do I have experience selling my own business to attract ideal clients, I sell my clients to their current and future customers.

Graphic Design: Craft graphics for events, specials, and/or large announcements. All of which can be versioned to fit any (of the many) social media and print dimensions.

Web Design: Design simple websites for clients like the nonprofit I reside on the board of, savingsunnyinc.org in addition to my own website which you're currently at, and more.

Public Relations: When you publicly represent a brand, you also inherit the role of PR. I've navigated large protests outside my clients door, to grand openings, music festivals,
and the uncertainty of COVID.
