My advertising product photography has received international and regional awards, including honorable mentions from the London International Creative Competition, the Prix de la Photographie Paris PX3, the PPA International Photography Competition, and the San Diego County Fair International Photography Exhibition.
I have done both corporate event and commercial headshot photography. It was part of the social media content I delivered while doing corporate blogging coverage for Oracle and Lexmark. Events covered include Oracle’s annual customer conference, Oracle OpenWorld; and for Lexmark, I reported on HIMSS, a leading healthcare conference in New Orleans, and NRF, the National Retail Federation, in New York.

CREATIVE DIRECTION OF PHOTOGRAPHY (eBay)
I also direct and produce corporate photo shoots. As Content and Creative Director for eBay, I spearheaded eBay’s new content strategy and marketing program called the “Real Sellers Initiative.” The program’s purpose was to provide photos, stories, tips and testimonials of actual sellers to help inspire and motivate eBay’s selling audience.
My role was hands-on from start to finish. I also worked as the content strategist, producer, talent scout, wardrobe buyer, location scout and set decorator—all make the project happen on time and on budget.
