About Me

I graduated cum laude with a bachelor's degree in communications from Stetson University in 2010 and am looking for a job in the production field. I interned at Pink Sneakers Productions in Orlando, FL and assisted with many aspects of reality TV production (including development, casting, and post production). It was while at Pink Sneakers that I discovered my passion specifically for reality TV/documentary production. I also discovered that my areas of strength and interest within the production realm lie in casting and production coordination because of my ability to spot great characters and stories as well as my strong organizational skills. I also have experience as a production assistant for several live events. I am energetic, a team player, and very eager to learn.

Intern, Pink Sneakers Productions, Inc., Orlando, FL Aug - Dec 2009
