It seems almost ironic that when I was put to the task of memorizing my first poem, "The Road Not Taken", by Robert Frost in the fifth grade, those same words would become the mast I relied on to steer me through my first 'quarter century life crisis' and into a completely new industry and career than I had originally set out in.
Unlike most other filmmakers, I didn't purchase my first camera until I was 25 years old. Don't get me wrong, I've always had a fascination with film and theatre; from attending summer theatre camps, performing monologues in the middle school talent shows, and directing scripted videos of my father dressed as 'Stella Stanley, The Modern Day House Wife' in the fifth grade. My assumption would have been that if I had any future in film, it would have been in front of the camera.
As life goes, I realized that I had a real passion for filmmaking after producing and editing a documentary film in Uganda post college graduation and right before I was about to begin a corporate merchandising job at Abercrombie & Fitch. Three years into my corporate job, I finally had the courage to quit my job, and forge into the film industry, with no real experience other than what I'd taught myself from making the short documentary.
Today, I am living and working in NYC as a freelance videographer, editor and producer for various clients. In my free time I am making short videos about anyone and or anything that touches, moves and inspires me.
My work ranges from capturing live music performances, interviews, and competitions, to shooting short inspirational documentaries. I have numerous credits as a videographer and editor for Billboard.com and as a camera assistant for The Michael J. Fox Show, various national commercials, and one feature film. I also love collaborating with other creatives!
