My first camera was a gift from my Dad on my 16th birthday. The first real picture I took was of my brother and sister sitting in a field of grass (see below right.) I took the picture while we were visiting colleges in a 28 foot camper (5 kids ages 4-16 and my mom- epic!) It was after taking this picture that I chose to express my creativity through the lens of a camera.
I learned my technical skills studying for a BFA at Cornell University. I went on to work for 12+ years as a video producer. My experience working directly with corporate clients in the production world helps me translate ideas into images. I have an artistic eye for posing, location scouting and props that result in unique images reflecting the essence of the companies I work with.
I live in Wellesley, Massachusetts where I enjoy time with family, swimming, the beach and friends.
I'm a Jersey Girl. I grew up hanging down the shore with my girlfriends listening to Bruce & Bon Jovi. It was here that I developed my love of all things entertainment. In a perfect world I’d be Madonna’s Personal assistant.
In pursuit of my dream I attended The University of Wisconsin - Madison, where I earned my Bachelor of Arts Degree in Radio, TV and Film. I worked in the Big Apple for High Bar Productions producing BodyShaping and other fitness programs for ESPN before moving to Boston and working as a Video & Event Producer with Cramer Productions. Before joining Maura, I was a full time mom, a volunteer for many charitable organizations including the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of America and a part time interior design project manager.
I live in Newton with my family and still enjoy hanging down the shore and the occasional concert.
