Jack-of-all-trades and adventurer!
My experience in production spans five years where I have been actively involved in the production of films, documentaries, commercials, corporate video, and viral media content for companies including BuzzFeed, 3M, Nadex, and Limb Lab. The Midwest was my home until moving to New York City, so hard work and an adventurous spirit are in my blood. My work has been nationally acknowledged as I have produced a commercial to be shown during the 2016 Olympic games, been awarded two production awards for the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences, and have one of the most viewed BuzzFeed news videos to date.
My strengths are in editing, photography, camera/lighting work (and data analysis), yet I have experience in producing, directing, and marketing. Additionally, my greatest passion lies in the study of life experiences, known as phenomenology. Deconstructing, analyzing, and empathizing with storylines throughout the broader human experience allows us as storytellers to create compelling narratives.
