About Me

16-year professional specializing in all forms of content creation, strategic communication, and visual storytelling of Film/Digital/TVC/Social Media platforms. I have a Bachelor of Arts in Film from Wayne State University and actively working on my Master of Arts in Strategic Communication’s (Media Studies concentration) from Michigan State University.

I am the quiet in the storm to be brief, a production guru who specializes in organizing the chaos associated with content creation and film production. I make sure the job gets in the can on time and on budget. I’m knowledgeable of all union rules and contracts. I’m able to do AICP budgets, movie budgets, production scheduling and crew hiring. I’ve produced everything from big-budget music videos for Big Sean to production coordinating a feature film with academy award winner Faye Dunaway. I’ve helped blue chip clients execute complex creative budgets as a producer and director all over the country and outside the U.S having worked on over 100 commercials for companies like Quicken Loans, Ford, UofM, GM, Chrysler, and Bermuda Tourism just to name a few.

I have been in the industry since 2004.
