I've been working in and around the media world for almost 30 years. I graduated from Ithaca College and spent several years honing my skills in Los Angeles before returning to England to complete my Masters in Journalism. Upon graduation I joined a small production company in North London where I specialized in location sound recording and post-production sound, earning a Children's BAFTA in 1997. On arriving back in the United States, I returned to my true passion, photography, and embarked on a 12-year career as a photojournalist working primarily on the South Shore. I later joined forces with The Trustees, a conservation organization in Massachusetts, and helped tell their many stories through photography, video, and social media. I'm incredibly excited to have launched this new media company. I am so excited to be embarking on this new journey, and I hope that you'll consider Summer Sky for your next project!
