ABOUT ME

BIO

I’ve been a content producer in LA and San Diego for the past 20 years. Started as an agency producer in the Midwest, moved to California and have been producing nonstop ever since. Worked with major brands and smaller brands, too. Managed productions across the United States, squeezing in the occasional short film. And lucky me – I’m still madly in love with my job. Working with creatives to make their ideas come to life on camera is fun, rewarding and challenging, always. It is my life’s work and something I do with pride. I’m grateful to the many amazing people I’ve met along the way.

THE STORIES

Last but not least... the STORIES. I’ve driven through LA traffic with a camera mounted on my car, following comedians with hidden cameras in their cars while they picked up and pranked unsuspecting UBER passengers. I shot a campaign for Hilton and wound up on the stage at the Grand Ole Opry with the creative director. I’ve shot on rooftops in LA, balconies in Mexico City, a pier in Vancouver, and an abandoned school in Detroit, just to mention a few of the intriguing places I’ve been. I look forward to swapping stories with you on set, during downtime at video village or at one of the ubiquitous production dinner.
