A Bit About Me
Growing up in Bellingham Washington, on a Christmas tree farm, I was taught the value of hard work and the advantage of collaboration. After years of manual labor and long hours in the rain and cold, I decided to leave for the big (at least to me) city of Seattle to get a degree in film, my greatest passion. At the art institute of Seattle I learned all aspects of film and video Production. My focus was on editing, directing and writing. Luckily, I have been fortunate enough to have career in those areas since my graduation.
I Have worked freelance for over a decade while also being employed, full-time, on different teams within Amazon for the last 7 years. I have worked on many different kinds of projects that have spanned from broadcast commercials and social ads to short form narrative content. I like to work with clients to find the best solution for their video needs, taking their brand and personality into account as we go. My passion is storytelling - helping you to find a voice with which to tell your story while making your message clear. With every decision I make I strive to take the project to the next level while creating new and interesting ways to share my client's message. I love working with people who are hard-working, passionate about what they do, and believe in themselves - it inspires me to be the same way!
