Work and Volunteer experience:

Working at concessions for the movie theater, where I have to interact with costumers and display excellent costumer service.

-Video Production Intern, Bobkat Productions, Sacramento, CA.May 2013-December 2013.
Worked as a grip/dolly grip on several shoots. I helped set up, take down and move the equipment from one location to the next. I pushed the dolly when we used it, which takes slow precise movements. I also took photographs of the shoot for the clients. When one of the actors fell through for the safety training video, I stepped in and took his place.

-Stage Manager, Danse Lumiere, Berkeley, CA. April-May 2013
I helped set up and take down chairs, took tickets at the door, showed people to their seats, made sure the dancers knew when rehearsal was, took notes from the director. I operated a light during the show, set up and took down the projector.

-Video Production Intern, Christiansen Media, Sacramento, CA. Sept-Nov 2006
I created a short documentary on a local humanitarian who was there when Pearl Harbor was attacked. I filmed and edited the documentary, and Christiansen Media used it to honor the humanitarian.
