questionnaire

What was your very first job? 

-My very first job was the first female employee at a local pizza joint at the ripe age of 15. 

Please describe, in your own words, what your job is and what work it entails.

-My job is interpreting creative visions and making those ideas a reality by compiling teams to product exciting visual work. 

How did you discover that the creative world was right for you? Was there a time in your life that you credit to this discovery? Was there a train of events that brought you where you are today?

-I decided quite young that I wanted to be a photographer, but working as a commercial photographer didn't seem quite right of a path. Years of working with creative teams, collaborating to create significant work is what led me to my current role. 

In your constantly growing and expanding industry, how do you find inspiration to keep your work fresh, innovative and relevant?

-The endless scroll of content surely helps keep track of growing trends and innovative ideas. I very ofter find inspiration in films and seeing the work of photographers. 

Which creative disciplines do you commission most, and are most interested in seeing more of and why? Which of these disciplines are you most interested in seeing at CONNECTIONS? (ie photo, film, production, social, experiential, vr, cgi, animation etc)

-The projects I commission most are photo, production, social and CGI, so I'm very interested in seeing work from these disciples. 

But I'd love to see latest work in VR, as even though I don't personally work too much in this world, it's quite exciting and I know it is growing quite fast!
