    About me

    My first major project was a documentary about Alaska Natives which won seven awards at various film festivals. I then worked as a Media Services Assistant for the University of Alaska Southeast. In this position, I learned more about camera operation, video editing and assembling equipment. In my hometown, I was a production assistant for an episode of TLC’s "Who Do You Think You Are?".

    I recently graduated from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign with a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Media and Cinema Studies. During my education at this university, I learned about various aspects of film production and how to create meaningful cinematic stories. Throughout the last few years I have participated in numerous film projects, such as a virtual reality short film and a six-episode web series, as well as filming and editing events as a freelance filmmaker. Through these opportunities I have learned how to effectively assist in production.
