Hi there, and thanks for visiting my website.  I am a creative and motivated digital production professional with 7+ years of progressive experience in video production, digital publishing and development.

I have a proven ability to combine vision, creativity, and analytical thinking to engage viewers, grow a loyal audience, raise brand awareness, and tell incredible stories.

Originally from Florida, I have been making movies since I was a teenager. My first feature was filmed on a HI-8 camcorder and edited on a VCR. I'm happy to say I've advanced quite a bit since then.
