About me

As a creative project manager with a degree in photography and a background in marketing, I have successfully managed and delivered thousands of finished products for Walker Edison, a leading furniture company. I have a passion for creating and improving workflows and processes using data collection and analytics, resulting in increased efficiency, quality, and performance across multiple teams and departments.

One of my greatest strengths is my ability to foster a culture of collaboration and innovation in competitive spaces. I believe that great ideas are everywhere and that we all benefit and lift each other when we share and utilize them. I have worked with diverse and talented teams of photographers, editors, stylists, videographers, and 3D specialists, both in-house and outsourced, to ensure that we meet and exceed client expectations and deadlines. I have also learned to effectively communicate and collaborate with our overseas photo studios, product development team, and business intelligence team, to create seamless and data-driven assets and solutions.
