I'm a multimedia professional who loves hearing and telling people's stories in an artful and compelling way. I've been told that my relaxed demeanor and patience have the ability to make even the most timid subjects naturals on camera. I've worked a variety of positions from being on-set and in the production office of feature films, to documenting the story of world-renowned businessmen, scientists and musicians, to gathering capital news and capturing the action of a sporting event from the sidelines. These experiences have led me towards developing exceptional camera instincts, as well as establishing an eye for lighting and shot composition. I also enjoy taking the time to listen and discuss with my team/clients on how to focus the project and best approach every situation, whether it be a marketing video or a strategy for filming a Facebook Live multi-camera event. 

I'm currently looking to incorporate my knowledge of media into academia to produce intuitive, exciting, and thought provoking content and instruction. I believe that my strong background in creating engaging media content for various audiences will serve as a foundation to bring my talents and insights to a new audience in education.

My devotion to my work has earned me national and regional recognition, including earning 3 Telly awards. I'm a great problem solver, skilled writer, and very knowledgable about technology, file types, file conversion, video codecs, and file management. I feel my technical abilities and approachable personality would be an asset to any company or production.
