I always knew that I wanted to work within the creative aspects of the entertainment industry and as I grew and became very interested in makeup, wardrobe, interior design, cool locations and Stanley Kubrick, I searched for a career that covers it all--production design. Throughout my first three years of college I knew what I wanted and took every opportunity, whether a small or large project, to explore my skills within this position even further. I've been able collaborate with a group of creative individuals whom have challenged me to create worlds and visual styles that both broaden and strengthen my skill-sets as well as meet the needs of their direction. From a number of short films and one indie feature, I have grown and become more confident in handling this position on larger and more challenging sets as well as leading a team of creatives within the art department during pre-production and production.
