Since graduating, I have worked for a few marketing agencies around Houston. I have helped businesses and clients develop their brand systems while growing their design/marketing pieces. Helping brands communicate with those around them and how they reach out to their customers inspires me. Being a part of their journey and curating their story gives what I do every day irreplaceable value.
My father’s hobbies include woodworking and photography. His father taught him photography and developing photographs in a light room. I quickly showed interest in his camera ‘gadgets’ that he possesses, some from his father in the 1940’s. He then began to teach me about cameras and photography styles. I was only 12 years old when he got me my first point and shoot Nikon® camera. Nothing that had any magical bells and whistles but something I could easily take with me to friends and family parties to practice. This was my first digital camera. I would then proceed to go to the local Wal-greens with my saved money and developed my photos. We then would sit together and share some of our favorites that we took of that day, looking at the different angles and cropping of the photos.
