I fell in love with stories at a young age. I first delved into the world of storytelling by creating my own written works and later explored these narratives further by making short films. I have a degree from Monmouth University in Communication: Television and Radio with a minor in Writing. I have edited on Final Cut, Adobe Premiere and Avid. Besides being able to simply cut a piece together, I am proficient in chroma keying and green screening techniques. My writing has won two honorary awards from the National Broadcast Society and also an award from the Monmouth University Department of Communication. I am always attempting to better my writing through research and prompts. I am a tenacious worker with an appetite for new material. I have worked on a variety of shoots including weddings, triathlons, infomercials and even a video for the Catholic Church which featured an Archbishop. I am an experienced and dependable worker whose aim is to get the job done with the best possible outcome. But most of all, I want to have fun with it and enjoy what I do. When it comes to telling a story, no matter what that story might be, I know I will always enjoy myself.
