I'm Danielle, but
you can call me Dani.
A conceptual thinking goofball who is inspired and dedicated to photographing and showcasing real, raw and authentic moments and creating timeless and strategic content. To say that I love what I do is an understatement, to me being a creative isn’t a job it’s a lifestyle. I currently reside in Munster, IN with my dog Wrigley, but have a true desire to travel the world. I love being able to meet new people and showcase everyone’s personal narrative. Some other things that I love: NPR, coffee, design, coconut milk, The Devil Wears Prada, a solid IPA-especially if it’s a double, musicals, hiking, cooking, Instagram, marketing and advertising, church, Parks & Rec and the Chicago Cubs. Feel free to bond with me over any of the aforementioned items. I’m sure we’ll
get along. Cheers!
I started my craft as a visual storyteller when I was a junior in high school. I picked up a simple digital camera and started taking pictures of well, myself. And to my surprise, I discovered my eye for photography. By starting my journey of selfie-taking, I learned I have a true passion for creating. I went on to get my BA in 2010, specializing in art studio with an emphasis in graphic design while starting my career journey in 2013, and officially graduating in 2014. I have fulfilled multiple advertising and marketing roles as well as production roles as a designer and photographer since. My experiences in the industry have armed me with a very broad skill set, from managing creative teams, being responsible for the design & imagery, creative concepts and final outputs including social media content, print and web development. I work very hard to get the best from the teams I work with and to push creativity to achieve my client's goals.
