RESUME

My experience, skills, and assets for YOUR brand

I am a photographer, content creator, and strategist. I have a cheerful disposition, am neat and well organized. I am motivated by problem solving and improvement. I work well independently, but am collaborative; a team player. I am efficient and work well within deadlines.  I align myself with the culture shaping, the rule breaking, and the innovative. In my free time, I create recipes, read philosophy, listen to comedy, and people watch.
