I aided in building the all-female creative agency and digital media company Girlgaze for the first 2 years of its life. Throughout my time there I was able to work with an array of incredible female-identifying artists, photographers, directors and teams on multiple projects with some amazing brands, including Google, Adobe, Levi's, Warby Parker, Shinola, and Gap.
Below is a selection of the projects I produced while with Girlgaze:
Short Film + Event Series
A series of 4 short films by 4 different female directors telling the stories of 4 incredible women who have overcome obstacles to shape their world.
The films were screened at a series of events in NYC, LA, and SF.
Short Film + Photography Series
A series of 5 short films highlighting girls who have committed their lives to work that betters their communities. Films by director Stephanie Szerlip and photography by Heather Hazzan.
Campaign for the Shinola Fall '17 line of jewelry, watches, and bags.
Social Media Photography Campaign
User generated social media campaign to promote the release & re-release of the AdeCxWarby glasses frames.
Worked with 29 photographers to produce a series of photos featuring the frames.
Short film competition
Received submissions for short films from female-identifying directors across the country to find the top 5 short films by up-and-coming female directors. Winners received a job with one of the brand sponsors to create a branded film, as well as a cash prize.
Judges included Shonda Rhimes, Jill Soloway, Dee Rees, Tracee Ellis Ross, Geena Davis, Amandla Stenberg, Zendaya, Bela Bajaria, Sheila Nevins, Rashida Jones, Ellen Kuras, and many more incredible women in the industry.

Curated and produced the #girlgaze: a frame of mind exhibition at the Annenberg Space for Photography. The exhibition featured work from over 150 female- and trans-identifying artists from around the globe. The exhibition ran from October 2016 to March 2017.
Curated and produced #girlgaze: UNCENSORED at LA gallery space Subliminal Projects. The gallery featured selected artwork by over 50 photographers from the worldwide #girlgaze community, celebrating the human body – all different shapes, sizes, and stages – including parts that are generally kept hidden from the public eye, addressing historically taboo subjects including scars, rolls, body hair, transitioning, and internal struggles such as anxiety and depression. The exhibition ran from September 29, 2017 - October 28, 2017.
