Jr. Design and Innovation Consulting Intern/Conic Group
How Did You Break Into The Industry / Your First Job
Networking. For my first job with Edward Don and Company, I was able to meet the head photographer and marketing specialist, Stella Lorens, while I was instructing a course at Gallery's Choice. During this art course, I was able to talk with Stella and discuss my art and marketing background. About a week later, she called Gallery's Choice looking for me. I was offered the Marketing Production Assistant Internship position, where I worked as Stella's direct assistant. I was with the company about four months. After I left, I used another contact I had made outside of work to get a job with the production department of a movie as a set and still photographer. I worked for about a month on the film Anguish, which premiered in Chicago in October, 2015.
Long Term Career Goal
I am working to become a creative director. Currently, the most important thing to me are the stepping stones that I will need to become a well rounded director. My resume is diverse, and growing more and more diverse with every job I take. In order for me to become a great art director and eventually excellent creative director, I am continuing to diversify my experience and growing the network of professionals I know and have worked with personally.
