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; Picking up 2019 Daytime Emmy and 2016 Primetime Emmy nods.
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’ve written and Directed commercials for several major networks including ABC, FOX and CBS All Access. I’m 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 New York, where I consider myself to be a very fortunate breast cancer survivor.
