EXPERIENCE

At Bella Cada Media we strive to help musicians grow by providing media services like live music documentation, portraits, music videos, and fine art photographs for album covers. I take lead on on photographic shoots in addition to taking care of marketing, customer service and finances.

Shift Leader, Caffe Nero Washington Square; Brookline, MA — Dec. 2017 - Oct. 2018

As a shift leader I craft various coffee drinks including but not limited to cappuccinos, lattes, espressos, flat whites, cortados, and drip coffee.  I also am responsible for cleaning around the cafe and giving excellent costumer service. I was also in charge of leading the staff, counting the till, and diffusing any problems that arose.

Photographer, Clix NE; Salem, NH — Sept. 2017 - Dec. 2017

As a Clix NE Photographer I took school portraits of children at daycares and elementary schools.  This  position required me to work with young children and creating a safe environment so children feel comfortable letting me take their photos. I learned to work quickly and efficiently in order to take portraits of every student in the school in a timely manner. 

Photo Documentarian, Appel Farm Arts Camp; Elmer, NJ — June 2017 - Aug. 2017

As a photo documentarian I took hundreds photos of the campers daily and uploaded them to a secure site for their parents to see.  I also wrote a daily blog post updating parents on their child’s daily camp experience.

As a photography intern I do event and portrait photography for students and faculty.  After shooting, I edit the photos in Lightroom and uploaded them to Flickr.

Photographer, Michaela Salvo’s Photography; Hammonton, NJ — July 2016 - 2019

I am the lead photographer at my own business for weddings, events, portraits, food, real estate, and fine art photography.

Waitress, Columbia II; Hammonton, NJ — Jan. 2016 - June 2017

At Columbia II, I presented specials, took orders, served food and drinks, and bused tables.  In addition to these duties, I made sure customers had a wonderful dining experience with my cheery and upbeat demeanor.
