About Me

I have a Bachelors in Science from the University of Northern Arizona, where I studied video production and graduated with Summa Cumme Laude Honors. I worked for several areas around campus that allowed me to gain vital experience and knowledge in the field. I was the chief photographer for the only local news station in Flagstaff. My job consisted of finding stories, shooting interviews and b-roll, all the way to the editing process. I worked on a deadline where I had to do the above tasks in a day so that my work could air on the 6:00 o'clock newscast.

I also worked for the NAU athletics as a camera operator. My job was to set up my camera, operate camera, and communicate with the director of production for live sporting events.

Most recently I work with NAU TV where I am a production assistant working with an Emmy award winning production staff. I assist in the production of commercials, web content for the marketing department, as well as direct, write and shoot for independent projects.

I am willing to travel for work. I am extremely self motivated, work well on my own or in a group, and I look forward to starting a career in the video production world
