My experience varies from producing photoshoots, filming and editing executive initiatives, creating digital assets for worldwide conferences, producing and filming virtual events, designing and animating digital signage, photographing employee headshots, to painting abstract artworks. The brands I’ve worked with range from corporate to non-profit including Arby’s, Buffalo Wild Wings, Sonic, Jimmy Johns, The College of Rheumatology, and the HCM software company isolved- to name a few. I’ve worked directly with stakeholders and executive leaders, from creative brief to final delivery, on elevating each project and taking their brand to the next level. I’m passionate about all the different aspects of the various projects I work on, always continuously pushing and challenging myself with every step I take. My curiosity often gets the best of me, as my recent endeavor of exploring more mediums of art finds myself going deeper and deeper down the rabbit hole of daily art posts and abstract painting.

Working both on and off set, I have learned what goes into a compelling story. From my time in pre-production to post, I take into consideration the intricate beats of a moment. In creating those moments, I value strong collaboration when working on a project. Firmly believing the most creative ideas are produced by communication, teamwork, and thinking outside the box. The most innovative structure starts off with a solid foundation contributed by everyone.
