ABOUT ME:
I produce and direct inventive and captivating content across brands and networks in the digital and television world.
I'm effective in quality and strong delivery turnaround of material, pre-production, on location field producing and camera directing, writing and shaping story in post production, research, casting, booking, writing scripts, interviewing talent, and sourcing and clearing archive material. Additionally, I'm experienced in Adobe Photoshop, I edit in Adobe Premiere and know Avid Media Composer. 
On the production management end, I've managed budgets, sourced crew and negotiated rates, sourced gear and negotiated rates, obtained certificate of insurances, creating callsheets and show rundowns, released locations and talent, checked in gear at airports, and completed typical in-the-field production management duties (meals/crafty, etc). I am experienced in using Quickbooks Desktop and ADP payroll and ADP Time & Attendance timecards for productions.
When not traveling for work or play...
I'll be finding some new delicious food to try or playing with my goldendoodle puppy. In between that you may find me training for a marathon, pretending that going to crossfit once every three months makes you good at it, and online shopping since you get more variety on the web than in store. Otherwise you can find me at my easel: painting, drawing, refurbishing, and crafting...the DIY's are endless!
