About Me

I've known what I want to be since I was 5 years old. My passion has always been film. When I was 9 I began making my own "soap operas" surrounding my family using an old news camera and reel-to-reel editing the tapes on 2 VCRs. No one really knew what to say to me when they asked, "what do you want to be when you grow up?" and I would answer, "Actually, I'm GOING to be a filmmaker who runs her own company!"

Over the next 5 years I got my eyes, hands, and ears ALL over every single dvd commentary, extra feature and film related literature I could.I started working professionally in television back in 2005 when I was 14 years old. Since then, I've been able to use my work ethic and student mentality to learn and hone new skills while applying skills already developed to teach others and carry productions.

Thus far, I am only 23 and am able to say that I have held titles all the way down to student all the way up the ladder to Associate Producer!

Now its time to swim to the big water and make it in the big bad city!
