PROFILE

I have a passion for finding and telling stories wherever they exist. For the past 8 years, I have freelanced through countless advertising, documentary, and narrative projects with clients varying from music labels, non-profits, healthcare, brands, and publications. My experience has focused on collaboratively leading a team through representing someone’s story with respect and dignity throughout the entire process. I also have a huge ramen addiction and think that Babe (yes, the pig that thinks it’s a dog) is one of the best movies ever made.

EXPERIENCE

Director, Producer Freelance 05/11 - 11/18

Through the last few years, I have worked with a large variety of clients on all sides of the process from creative strategy and development, through production, to delivery and execution of content created. I’ve worked on and lead a range of crew sizes from small “run and gun” operations to large sets and productions. I’ve films that I’ screen in competition at festivals and garnered several features. My time of wearing multiple hats and “saying yes” to everything has lead to a diverse knowledge and skillset of the whole process of content creation and film production. I’ve developed a strength for navigating production while stewarding the strategy, schedule, and budget.

We also shot several features with collaborating artists and product makers and produced lifestyle content and behind the scenes images of the company, store, and its events in photo and video form.
