Next week I will have the pleasure of meeting my idol and inspiration through this entire process, Sean Grady, the Sr. Graphic Designer of the Chicago Blackhawks. Since joining the Redbirds, I have fallen in love with my job. Nothing through this entire process has ever felt like work! The photography, graphic design, the meetings, social media, all of it! Sean Berry inspires my photography but Sean inspires my design. Obviously, because most of my stuff resembles the looks the Blackhawks go for. That vintage jersey feel. Because of my job at Walsh I was able to make a significant connection to Sean and we will have lunch together next week! I have never been so excited! He literally holds the position I want for a career, a graphic designer of a NHL team. I know I constantly say I want to photograph team, and I do, but the goal is really to land a position with a professional team in a creative department. This whole marketing and branding is too much fun! I love all of it! I’m so excited to tell Sean my story and all my efforts!
