    About me

    Over ten years of experience working in film and television production. BA in Journalism and Tele-Communication from University of Alaska Anchorage and an MFA in Film Production from the New York Film Academy. Worked in Los Angeles, CA from 2007-2010. Relocated to Alaska in 2010 in response to state film incentive. Helped develop state-wide crew base, education resources and creative outlets for indie film community. Full time crew for feature films, commercials, reality programming, new media and political campaigns. Experience as Producer, Director, Production Manager, Assistant Director (1st, 2nd & 2nd 2nd), PA, Screenwriter, G&E, and Locations Manager. Currently splitting time between Los Angeles (West Hollywood) and Denver. I enjoy working with different production teams and creating a positive work environment to maximize production efficiency.
