In a nutshell
I just like to collaborate and make really great sh*t. But for a deeper dive, here you go…
As the daughter of a career Army officer, I grew up all over the world. The experience allowed me to observe a wide variety of cultures and perspectives. I picked up my first 35mm SLR camera at age 12 to document a family trip through the Austrian Alps – and never looked back!
Fresh out of high school, I migrated to New York City where I jumped into the world of production. My first job on set was getting the crew coffee and bagels. Over the next decade, I moved through the ranks from Production Assistant to Producer; on hundreds of music videos, commercials, television specials and multi-camera live events – and everything in between.
After stints at Heavy.com and Sundance Channel, I landed at A&E Networks. I was the Head of Production for History Marketing when I came to the realization that I really, really, really wanted to be a creative. I began to write and pitch ideas, became a Creative Director and ultimately, SVP of Brand Creative. I led the creative on some of the biggest events in broadcast history — from the now legendary miniseries Hatfields & McCoys to the mainstay series Pawn Stars.
I’ve received multiple Promax & Clio Awards for my work; most notably picking up a primetime Emmy nomination in 2016 for History’s Roots: A New Vision as well as winning the prestigious NAACP Image Award for Best Documentary in 2017.
While doing all this, I began to pursue my life-long interest in the craft of cinematic storytelling through hands-on directing. I began directing content with partners such as Geico and Dish TV; and promos for shows such as Roots, American Pickers and Vikings.
I am focused on continuing to grow as an artist and expand my creative reach. My unique ability to understand all aspects of creative and production – from ideation to implementation – makes me a multi-faceted, cross-functional asset.
I currently live in NYC where I consider myself to be a very fortunate breast cancer survivor.
