RECOMMENDATIONS:

“Nina has been a photo editor/curator in the Flickr Curation Department for almost a year. Her goals have included curating high quality photographers and photos, assessing UGC for IP (intellectual property) and building the look and feel of the Flickr collection for third party licensing opportunities. During this time, Nina has consistently demonstrated an excellent eye for quality content and has been a driving force in developing the Flickr brand. She has worked on galleries, licensing and community support initiatives, and in addition, her experience as an amazing photographer with a love for the art form, has contributed to the success of these initiatives. Nina also has a strong work ethic and is a pleasure to manage, so without a doubt, she comes with an excellent recommendation.”

- Kimberly Potvin, Director of Curation & Content at Flickr

 

“Nina was an awesome addition to 42Floors for over 2 years that she was with us! Throughout the whole time she worked with us, she was professional, her work was outstanding, and we could fully trust her with even our most finicky clients. We were sad to see her go, but happy that she found a great position. We would hire her back in a heartbeat!”

- Emily Spady, VP of Operations at 42Floors

 

"Nina is smart, super-organized, charming, and able to juggle multiple challenges simultaneously. She successfully managed a small army of volunteers for our first-ever major international conference in Paris in 2010. She also helped with space planning for the event, and created graphics and welcome kits for the participants. Also, she tallied results for a global photo competition, and produced editorial content for our online magazine. I highly recommend her for any position of responsibility."

- Jim Casper,  Publisher & Editor of Lens Culture
