A Little About Me

I have been making videos and films for eight years. I am a creative perfectionist. Once given a story line and/or guidelines to a project, I am determined to get it done and at the highest possible quality. I have an eye and an ear for details that most people don't notice in audio/video production.

I have experience and I'm ready to take on any challenges ahead.

Active Member

Distinguished Filmmakers Network

Successfully completed a five minute film in three days for Campus Movie Fest at Longwood University. The film won Best Picture Overall and Best Crime Drama. The film also went on to be a national finalist in the Norton Crime Drama Contest. Because of the quality of the film and my passion of filmmaking, I was accepted into the exclusive Campus Movie Fest Distinguished Filmmakers Network.

Longwood Show Cast/Crew

Longwood University

The Longwood Show is a student-run organization which branches off of the Longwood University Public Relations Department. The organization’s sole purpose is to create fun and interesting videos in order to attract prospective students. You can see samples of Longwood Show episodes that I have been in and worked on in the "work samples" on the left.

Editor - Intern

Barnes-West Video Production

At Barnes-West Video Production, I was about to sharpen my skills and learn a few things along the way. I was able to take what I had learned and experience I had gained and apply it to real-world applications. I started working at Barnes-West as an unpaid intern. After only a couple of weeks, my supervisor asked me if I wanted to do some paid side jobs, and then ultimately offered me a full-time job. Unfortunately, because I was moving back to Virginia to finish school, I wasn't able to take the position.

Seasonal Intern
