Raised in the outskirts of Montana, Carly’s creative ambitions started early as she spent her younger days dabbling in photography, drawing and writing. With a degree in Advertising Photography from Rochester Institute of Technology and fifteen years of experience in the media industry, she is now a respected LA-based Creative Director. With a strong background in editorial & journalist content—working in the magazine industry for 10 years—Carly believes narrative storytelling is the key to engaging an audience and creating brand recognition. Through her many talents—as a designer, writer and photographer—Carly currently consults with luxury brands in the areas of rebranding, social strategy and creative direction for photography & video content.
Carly’s keen eye for design, competence in generating creative ideas and proven leadership skills has lead her to collaborate with top brands such as Tesla, NBC, LA Times, Los Angeles Magazine, and GOOD Inc. Her smart, inventive work has won several prestigious awards such as ASME, SPD, American Photography 18 and James Beard Award.
