HI I'M CHYANE, AND I LIKE TO PARTY
Hey there! If you're visiting this page, it looks like we might get the chance to work together - yay! Here is everything you need to know about me:
I am 100% an extrovert, Myer-Briggs ESFP (The Entertainer), and Enneagram Type 8w7 (The Maverick). I'm a Taurus with a fire dominant personality. Any time I am not at a photoshoot/wedding, you can find me working for an exotic animal conservancy - caring for the animals, taking photos, and running their social media! Yes - I would love to send you sloth photos, please ask me about them!
I am incredibly patient, easy going, love kids and grandparents alike, and will talk to anyone about anything. I can be as assertive or as aloof as you need me to be (trust me, I will be loud if you want.)
Honestly, I am just a huge dork that loves to help people and make them laugh. I can make friends with anyone. I am all about making people feel comfortable and helping out with whatever I can. I am passionate about mental health, community, and always optimistic. I got you!
I am always grateful for feedback and just happy to be involved. I take constructive criticism like a champ and promise I will never be offended if there is something I can do better to make sure YOU are supported. This is your gig! I will carry your bag, grab you an energy drink, or stay late if you need me. I also keep a bunch of emergency supplies with me at all times.
I can't wait to work with you! Questions? Let's hear 'em!
