More About This Degree


I moved across the globe to Dubai, served as photo editor for Cosmopolitan Middle East, and currently work as a freelance photo editor for various magazines.

After working at Marie Claire & Shape Magazine in New York City for four years, I moved across the globe to Dubai where I served as photo editor for the iconic Cosmopolitan Middle East, the bestselling woman's magazine in the GCC.  I'm currently a freelance photo editor for various magazines.

As photo editor of a magazine, I am responsible for finding the images seen throughout the magazine.  I also direct the photo shoots, working with the photographer and the subjects, to make sure we always get the perfect image. 

Working and living in the Middle East is not as scary as most American’s might envision. I have met some of the most intellectual people, live a very comfortable life, and have the ability to travel very easily. Dubai has become a hub in the region within the last 10 years. As a bonus, it has been great to learn about the Islamic and Arabic culture that surrounds me, while still interacting with a lot of expats who are just like me.
