Originally from Florida, I've been in LA for 2 years and have experience in Field Coordinating, Assistant Directing and Script Coverage. I'm also a writer/director and my first short film (2014) has been shown in several local film festivals. Although my background is mainly in reality, I hope to soon make the transition to scripted television/film.
