Passion is sparked with the most humble of beginnings.
My first time touching a camera left a sense of fear and excitement. Now, it is all too common to see a camera on my shoulder, my editing software loaded up, and a clipboard in hand. As time went on, I focused my efforts on creating strategic marketing pieces with my internship at the City of Palm Coast. I moved on to strategic content planning and creation for Le Macaron French Pastries in Saint Augustine. All while earning my Bachelor of Arts in Media Production, I took every opportunity to expand my skill set and connect with others through immersive professional endeavors,
In addition to my previous production work, I am also very active with the organization and planning of Film Festivals in Florida. There is nothing quite like creative minds gathering together to enjoy current films and plan for the next big blockbuster. My love for the film industry has taken me abroad, with working experience at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival in the film market. By day, I was assisting Producers in the L.A. based Film Finance company, Taylor and Dodge. By night, I worked as an Event Intern with Brilliant Consulting to ensure the smooth operations of high-profile after-parties. This opportunity gave me an inside glimpse into the inner-workings of the film industry through hands-on experience. Most importantly. I now have lifelong friends from around the globe.
In addition to documentary filmmaking, visual storytelling, and my past festival experience, I have both Professional and Volunteer experience in live event production. Past clients include the Flagler County School Board where I directed multiple shows. I thrive in fast-paced settings and I am happy to work within any position.
While earning my Bachelor of Arts Degree in Media Production, I have worked with a wide variety of clients to achieve their unique visions through video content. I spent Spring 2020 working as a Teacher's Assistant for the Introduction to Multimedia Production class at Flagler College while progressing in my coursework. I currently work as a Production Assistant with the Award-Winning Video Marketing Company, CycleHere Media.
My passion for this industry has allowed me to gain experience in nearly every aspect of production. I am eager to use the tool of filmmaking to build empathy and a deeper understanding of human nature.
My second love is traveling. I have been able to work on productions, attend festivals, and connect with others around the world.
