I'm a curator, photographer, writer and people connector and, like my headline, champion of all kinds of creatives.
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.
In my spare time, I run Humble Arts Foundation, a non-profit dedicated to supporting up and coming art photography.
I've curated over 50 exhibitions online and IRL, sometimes with some of my curatorial heroes like Charlotte Cotton, Natalia Sacasa and Mickalene Thomas, landing press in HyperAllergic, Aperture, Featureshoot, The New York Times and The New Yorker.
My writing on photography has appeared in 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, Business Insider, Bon Appetit and (strangely) Fox News.
I recently co-founded Found.Space, a new exhibition space in Seattle's Capitol Hill opening April 2018. Read some press about us.
I'm available for a whole lot of projects – let's connect!
