Working in film has been a passion for me since I was 13 and watched the "Behind-the-Scenes" of Star Wars A New Hope and fell in love with how the set worked and how teamwork made something come to life.
Pursing my dreams in high school and studying broadcasting and media production I took a step forward in college and started with my Associates in Mulit-Media at ICC (Illinois Central College) and then transfered to finish my degree as a B.A. in Arts & Science and Digital Filmmaking at AIPX (Art Institute of Phoenix).
To me though the learning never stops, each production is a new and wonderful experience. The thing I love most is making a team come together and problem solving to help get the production completed and within budget.
There is no other job like Filmmaking, where you can come together as a team family and wake up smiling enjoying every minute of your day!
