As she continued through her college years, graduating with a BS in Business and Psychology, photography quickly became her hobby. Connie shifted gears into publishing, becoming a high profiled senior account director for over 20 years working for prestigious luxury fashion & lifestyle magazines such as: Women’s Wear Daily Newspaper, W, Gothom, Hamptons magazines, for example, and ultimately relocated to Los Angeles, CA in 2004 to oversee magazines such as: Fancy Publications, Niche Media, Malibu Magazine, and Luxe Interiors + Design.
Alongside her career, Connie always dedicated her free time for travel and coexisting those travels within her two passions, photography and nature. Also being an athlete in mountaineering, snowboarding, running marathons, mountain biking, surfing, and hiking has exposed her to shooting in some of the most incredible locations around the world. From the icy summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro, Africa, cycling jagged peaks of Positano, Italy, and surfing Kauai, Hawaii oceans.
Connie currently lives in Topanga, California where she continues to be inspired locally with a mission to reach a worldwide audience. She participates locally in her community and covers local events such as the Topanga Film Festival and Topanga Chamber of Commerce events. In addition, local music festivals such as Reggae on the Mountain and Malibu Guitar Festival which are all held within the majestic Santa Monica Mountains set against the pristine Pacific Ocean. More relationships are being developed this year amongst LA’s finest music venues such as The Wilton, The Roxy, and The Canyon Club.
Connie’s photography will transcend you into feeling every beat, movement, and splendor of beauty that surrounds us. Stay tuned. Connie’s wish is to bring her world. Out the Lens. To share with you.
Peace ~ Love ~ Magic
