There are a lot of reasons why people become artists. For me, it’s always been about the optimism.
Because the optimism of creating has done so much for me that I can’t help but share it. You see, creativity is one of the most powerful tools we have. I think thats freakin awesome. Like, bottomless guacamole awesome.
Whenever life has handed me a challenge or an obstacle I’ve learned to use it as an opportunity for creative problem solving. The more I’ve traveled the more I’ve realized that there are a lot of other people who have figured out that same thing.
The world is full of big-hearted, talented creatives who have built businesses out of the need to solve a problem or add a little more light to the world. I’ve made it my mission to help those go-getters get the photography and marketing they need to make a bigger impact.
AUTHOR- PHOTOGRAPHER – CREATIVE GO-GETTER
I graduated from ASU with a degree in Graphic Information Technology with a focus in Web Development and UX Design. In other words, I have a degree in being the person you go to when you need branding, marketing, design, and coding, or some combination of those things. Years of work experience in many facets of design and marketing lead me to food photography and styling, which has allowed me to combine my love of creating with my love of tech and strategy. We have fun, to say the least.
My primary business venture is The B Edit, a creative agency specializing in food photography and styling for food and hospitality brands. Through The B Edit I’ve shot for brands including Simple Mills, Purely Elizabeth, True Food Kitchen, Fox Restaurants, and The Pierre Hotel, among others.
I also am the photographer and creative voice behind moriahbrooke.com, a blog for creative female entrepreneurs and overall optimists. This avenue recently lead to my first cookbook, which will be released in February 2022 with Page Street Publishing.
While my focus is photography and marketing in the food and hospitality world, I do take mentees in photography and creative business when it is a good fit. Feel free to inquire if this is of interest!
All of my ventures currently operate out of NYC, but I’m so ready to pack a bag and head to wherever your project is.
I’ve had the honor of speaking in multiple college classes and entrepreneur workshops on my career in creative business and entrepreneurship. If you have an event that might be a good fit feel free to send me the details.
A few of my titles.
I grew up making cardboard office cubicles and running a “company” in my parent’s basement, so we shouldn’t be surprised that I’m here making a website for my own business today. Here are a few extra names I’ve picked up since those early CEO days.
Please excuse the dog hair covering everything I own. It’s all the fault of my fur child. (He pops on my IG from time to time.)
GREEN CURRY NO RICE
My favorite Thai restaurant now refers to me by my go-to order. Does this mean I’ve made it?

Aren’t we all though?
