Despite descending from a long line of healthcare professionals and lawyers, Diana went in a slightly different direction. She discovered her passion for the arts and business management – which ultimately led to her role of in-house photographer and Office Manager at Accordion.
In 2008, Diana graduated Summa Cum Laude from the New York Institute of Technology with a Bachelor of Professional Studies in Architecture, Fine Arts, and Business Management. While in school, Diana’s love of photography led her to Industria Superstudio, one of New York’s top photography studios. As Studio Manager, she was responsible for booking photo shoots and events throughout the year, supervising a large team of Studio Assistants and Department Managers, and ensuring the best possible experience for high profile clientele in the fashion/creative sphere – including Conde Nast, Nike, and LVMH. She was heavily involved in the execution of Fashion and Market Week events, and is no stranger to the demands of working in a fast-paced environment with challenging personalities.
At Accordion, Diana strives to provide the highest level of support to her colleagues and anticipate their wishes before something is needed. As in-house photographer, Diana is responsible for capturing staff headshots and internal events – and her work has been featured in outlets like Mergers & Acquisitions.
No matter where life takes her, Diana loves meeting new people and working with like-minded creatives. When she’s not holding down the fort at Accordion or shooting an event, she can be found pool-side with her friends and family, traveling the world, or hiking with her two dogs.
