I fell in love with working video editing back in high school and knew from that moment on what I wanted to do with my life. A few months later, I started messing around with a camcorder that I find around the house and made short, funny videos with my friends.

I graduated from the Illinois Center for Broadcasting - Chicago Campus with certificate in Radio and Television Broadcasting in March 2012. There I was awarded the Bianca Patterson Award for the Most Outstanding Female Broadcaster. I enjoy taking on challenges that make me think outside-the-box and I strive to complete each video to the fullest.

Back in the fall of 2011, Dr. Ann Feldman, Executive Producer of the Artistic Circles' Water Pressure Program, approached me asking if I would create a video blog for their Youth Water Website. I have also interned with Ravenswood Media where I learned my editing techniques from my two mentors there.

Over the last few months, I've worked with various video production companies where I learned how to set up a Diva light, Mole-Richardson Baby lights and over-looked the script.
