Currently, I am the Creative and Fashion Director of the Talent Unlimited Group, a boutique fashion and entertainment consulting company. As the chief consultant for our key clients, I am primarily responsible for the message and image of our clients and their products. My training, development, and multi-tasking skills were put to task as I served as an interim executive for some of our clients. In editorial positions, I have written and edited content for their publications and websites while increasing brand awareness upwards of 35% amongst their target populations and stakeholders within a single year. In managerial positions, I have streamlined internal operating procedures and synthesized the brand voice for my clients while also creating and managing numerous events, including photo shoots, launch parties, and awards celebrations. In addition to working with online publications and entertainment companies, I have been a regular fixture at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, a go-to source for fashion and lifestyle brands, and spearheaded Styling & Imaging workshops for the New York chapter of the Grammys.
I have been commended many times for outstanding performance as both a team player and individual contributor with aptness in styling, new media, and fashion publication. My most recent accomplishments have taken place at FashionReverie.com, where I am the managing editor. Originally hired to facilitate the day-to-day operations and editorial logistics, my role has quickly expanded to include article writing and editorial styling. In the time that Ive been with the company, our editorials have been produced for 10-15% under budget (without sacrificing quality), and our readership has almost doubled from 600,000 monthly visits to now over 1,000,000.
