I am a career-long artist manager and producer working with a long list of brands, agencies, and media companies. I strive for excellence with every project I undertake, regardless of budget or scale, valuing the integrity of the process and the outcome equally. Here's my story:
When I graduated from Wellesley College with a degree in Philosophy, I decided that the most practical use of my theory-rich education would be to move to Waitsfield, Vermont, work in the Sugarbush rental shop, and ski my heart out. Eventually, and with considerable reluctance, I made my way to NYC, where I soon enrolled in an arts management graduate program at Columbia. During this amazing time of my life, I found my real comfort zone within a growing social circle of emerging New York painters and photographers. I started going on studio visits--which turned out to be a brilliant way to learn the language of art criticism--and eventually started curating pop-up shows and selling work to young collectors and corporate buyers who had an interest in acquiring meaningful and affordable art.
Not long after graduating, I landed my first job in advertising, working with the art buying team at Ogilvy. This experience gave me both the foundation and the courage to launch NJM Inc., an artist management and production company working in the commercial space. Over the years, I've had the privilege of representing some pretty exceptional creative talent, including Matthew Rolston, Mary Ellen Mark, Dana Lixenberg, and Jessica Dimmock. I also had what I considered a capstone moment a few years back while working as an agent with Magnum Photos, the legacy-rich Agency that long ago inspired my love of narrative photography.
With that, I am humbled and proud to represent world-renowned artists Tina Barney, Sharon Core, Mitch Epstein, Katy Grannan, and Laurie Simmons. We are an agency committed to making exceptional visual content guaranteed to cut through the dizzying clutter of mediocre visual content that bombards us daily.
