About Me

I’m a Producer with over 30 hours of television programming credits in the last 2 years for networks like Travel Channel, NatGeo, MTV, and Discovery. I’ve worked in every phase of production from the budding stages of development, to the trenches of field directing hosted reality programming, to writing VO-driven scripts, to cutting string-outs in the edit bay. As a well-rounded media pro, I can shoot, produce, write, and edit.

As a Field Producer, I have experience directing multiple cameras in "run and gun" situations, as well as larger film-style set ups. I have a strong sense of story and have no problem making quick, in-the-moment story decisions.

I‘m also a diligent collaborator and manager, with the ability to plan and oversee various projects, always ensuring they’re delivered on time and under budget. I'm known to have a tireless work ethic, a keen vision for storytelling, an easy-to-work-with demeanor and a never-ending thirst for knowledge. Don't just take my word for it, let my references back me up!

I graduated from SF State with a Bachelor of Arts in Radio & Television with an emphasis in Video Production in May 2008.

Specialties: Producer/Writer, Field Producer, Story Producer, Coordinating Producer, Post Producer, Writer, 1st AD, shooter (Sony EX-3 or DSLR), one man band, studio experience, travel experience, valid passport and driver's license.
