After spending 9 years in Upstate New York, a year in Atlanta, Georgia and 9 years in the San Francisco Bay Area, I am currently a BFA Film Major at Southern Methodist University with a Minor in Advertising and Arts Entrepreneurship with home base back in Upstate New York. It is my goal to elevate stories through the unique opportunities that video presents both conceptually and technically. I now have 6 years of film and advertising experience under my belt through Freestyle Academy of Communication, Arts, and Technology, and SMU's Meadows School of the Arts BFA Film Production program and the Temerlin School of Advertising. I have created multiple high scale short film productions, worked on a feature film set, and also multiple professional corporate commercial sets. Throughout my first three years at SMU I have expanded my experience in film through six internships working 10-20 hours a week, working 12 hours a day for three weeks on a summer feature film set, multiple Senior Thesis films, and multiple film production and studies courses. As a filmmaker, I strive to create films that connect with the viewer emotionally through my keen awareness of people.
