About Me

I'm a writer and director with multiple short films and one micro-budget feature film completed. In addition to my produced work, I have written several feature length screenplays and various shorts and comedy sketches. I graduated from Vancouver Film School in 2014 and have been writing scripts for over ten years, and have also written in various other mediums.

As a crew member, I have worked as an assistant camera on both commercial and creative projects! My experience is primarily as a 2nd AC on commercials but I have also worked as a 1st on small indie projects. My skills include: pulling focus, building cameras, changing lenses, slating, setting marks, managing equipment, driving a box truck, driving a cargo van. I have also done DIT and have a working knowledge of Shotput Pro. I have worked with all types of cameras, including RED, Arri, Blackmagic, Sony, Panasonic, and Canon. I am also open to Camera PA gigs since I recognize that I'm still building my experience in this department!

I also have over three years of experience as a PA on commercial, TV, film, and corporate shoots. I have assisted all departments in this role and have done just about any task that you may need assistance with. I've been a camera PA, art PA, and first team PA so I've worked closely with almost every department to help productions thrive. I have a valid California driver's license and I'm comfortable driving all types of vehicles, including pass vans, cargo vans, and box trucks!

I have been in the industry since 2016.
