I am an award winning photographer and filmmaker based in California. I have Bachelor of Fine Arts in Cinema with an emphasis in Editing. I discovered my love of visual storytelling while taking pictures and videos during my many backpacking and extreme sports adventures. I currently work full time as a Video Editor 2 for LinkedIn.
My peers would describe me as a self driven individual that can be counted on to think creatively, while at the same time being able to put the team first. I put much thought into ideas and how they should fit into a project before implementing them, and although I work very well alone, I also excel in a collaborative project environment.
My work has been published in local and national publications including the National Disaster Search Dog Foundation and the National Senior Games Association. In the 70th Annual College Photographer of the Year Competition in 2015, I won an Award of Excellence in the Sports Action category. I have also won Best Environmental Film at the San Francisco Frozen Film Festival and Best Student Documentary at Chargrin Documentary Film Festival for my short film “Code Yellow”.
When I’m not on the job, I’m living a healthy and active lifestyle. On my free time, I’m out in nature hiking, in the mountains riding my dirt bike, or at the gym lifting weights. I’m constantly looking for stories to share, because there is always a new story waiting to be told through film or a photograph.
