I spent the past decade-plus leading co-marketing partnerships at Shutterstock with creative communities and brands like CreativeMornings, TED, WIX, D&AD and General Assembly. My work fused business strategy with altruism, and the constant challenge: how to generate ROI and brand awareness, while creating thoughtful collaborative content that our buying communities actually need. I currently direct content/marketing strategy for Wemark, a new photo agency helping photographers take control over licensing their work.
In my spare time, I run Humble Arts Foundation, a non-profit dedicated to supporting up and coming art photography and work with photographers to find the words to make their work shine.
I've curated over 50 exhibitions online and IRL, sometimes with some of my curatorial heroes like Lumi Tan, Charlotte Cotton, Natalia Sacasa and Mickalene Thomas, landing press in HyperAllergic, Aperture, Featureshoot, The New York Times and The New Yorker. I recently won the 2019 Blue Sky curatorial prize with Roula Seikaly.
My writing on photography has appeared in VICE, Slate, Daylight and Time, and my weekly stories and interviews on Humble's blog have helped get photographers press, representation, and sell their work.
My own photographs have been featured in Vice, Booooooooom, Paper Journal, Ain’t Bad, Business Insider, Bon Appetit and (strangely) Fox News.
I recently co-founded Found.Space, a new exhibition space in Seattle's Capitol Hill opening in 2019. Read some press about us.
I'm available for a whole lot of projects – let's connect!
