SLK_AboutSamA

I was adopted from the world’s highest capital, La Paz, Bolivia in South America. I grew up in Maryland surrounded by nature and art. I went to high school in Delaware and in Philadelphia earned my Bachelors of Fine Arts from the Tyler School of Art, Temple University (Class of 2011).

Immediately after I walked for graduation, I worked at Disney World (Orlando, FL) as a PhotoPass Photography Intern. I returned a year later to Philly, after successful completion, to work at Viva Decor USA. Viva is an art supplier, and I worked as a creative designer for the following year.

In fall of 2013, I moved from Philadelphia to Florida and began work in December at the Harry Chapin Food Bank. The Food Bank is Southwest Florida’s largest hunger-relief nonprofit. I served as their Social Media and Online Services Coordinator. During my 2-year stint, I implemented a robust social media strategy, integrated marketing campaigns and constantly surpassed fundraising goals. I managed all of the the Food Bank’s online accounts, photography and graphic images. I was named a 2014  Storyteller of The Year by NP Tech Club, Southwest Florida. My brain child, #HarryLivesOn TweetChat, won a Fair Media Council Award in 2015.

As of January 2016, I left to explore and I am traveling the world as the #DigiNomadess.
