I have enjoyed over 13 years in advertising, including TV commercial production, still shoots, live events, marketing, branding + web design.

My objective is to continue to expand my reach as a creative + logistical producer, with a priority of developing long term and lasting professional relationships. I truly enjoy getting to the core of a brand while exploring their message, identity + design, marketing strategy + direction. I specialize in commercial and branded content development and production.

I bring a dedication and attention to detail that enables me to produce and manage exceptional logistical and technical solutions. I am invaluable when relating to clients, creatives and executives, and am a positive team member and leader, supportive within group dynamics.

I look forward to working with you…

Sharing a note on a project from late 2017 that is near to my heart, I produced for director Krista Liney, for Lifetime Network, The Breast Cancer Research Foundation and Orlando Pride Women’s Soccer Team.

We shot documentary style, real people, real locations, real athletes – including star goalie Ashlyn Harris. We shot in the beautiful Orlando Pride Stadium, and at two of our countries major Cancer Research facilities, being granted access to a top scientists there, along with her graduates during their final term. The brain power + commitment + integrity in the room was intoxicating. (I mean we shot in a real live OR (operating room) at a major cancer facility during business hours.  Talk about intimate and intense.)

This project, being female led with director and producer, had the same mind blowing challenges that all productions have, shooting in Orlando, rain storms, pro athlete schedule conflicts, low budget, medical locations with extremely limited access and ultra high sensitivity, not to mention the great ECLIPSE of 2017, yet every single thing continually fell right into place. More so than on any other production I’ve done.

On this project there was a spirit that led the way, every single day.

It was calm, focused and inspiring. Uplifting even when hard. Our entire crew and everyone we touched had an exceptional experience. I aspire to step onto sets these days with this same spirit from here on out, why not?? Let’s do this!
