Where are you searching for photography or other content needs nowadays?
Social media. There’s some great inspiration on Instagram and Pinterest 

What are you known for in the art buying/producing world?
Being highly creative and collaborative. I work well with both clients and creatives. 

Do you have a motto?
During crazy productions I often repeat “It will all get done,” because it always does! 

How about a favorite place to produce a shoot?
I love shooting on the streets of New York. It may seem trite, but it’s thrilling to block traffic with a large shoot and watch the magic happen.

If you decided not to art produce any longer, what would you choose to do?
I’d probably move into marketing. I like thinking about consumers and what motivates their purchase decisions.

I put together all the pieces that make up the ads you see on billboards and magazines.

I’ve been hired as foot model before. 

What is the last piece of creative that caught your attention?
I really liked the Equinox ads by Wieden shot by Steven Klein. 

What do you love about your job?
I love the search. Searching for the right photographer or partner to make the image  the best it can possibly be. 

What is your favorite way to spend a Sunday?
I’m pretty active. I like to run, bike and play tennis. I also dig brunch or breakfast with friends.
