About / Contact

Hi there! I'm an art/content producer and creative consultant based in Los Angeles with more than 12 years of experience working in advertising and publishing. My love for beautiful imagery and art runs deep thanks to having grown up in Rochester, NY - the hometown of Eastman Kodak. From a young age, I was always interested in cameras and rifling through my parent's stacks of National Geographic Magazine.

Since then, I've taken that passion and produced content for a wide range of clients including Volkswagen, Infiniti/Nissan, Mazda, Dr Pepper, Taco Bell, Pizza Hut, Anthem, Uber, PlayStation, HTC and Angel Soft. Prior to my career in advertising, I worked in the photo department at Essence Magazine in NYC where I produced shoots for the center of the book, music/culture, fashion, beauty, and food/living sections of the Magazine. Before I transitioned into photo editing, I began my professional career in public relations and wrote press releases, developed PR plans and secured attention from top-tier media outlets such as The Wall Street Journal and NY Times for various renowned high-tech companies. 

I earned a Bachelor's Degree in Advertising/Mass Communications from the School of Communications at Boston University. I also have an Associate's Degree in Photography from the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT). 

In my spare time, I enjoy taking photos, painting, cooking and adventuring in the great outdoors. You can find some musings about the business of photography/art and all my favorite things on my blog Mara's Mix
