Hey there! I’m a 2013 graduate of Ohio University, where I majored in Video Production and minored in Information and Telecommunications Systems at the Scripps College of Communication.
While in college, I worked on several projects and a feature film as a director of photography. I wanted to diversify, so I dedicated lots of time at WOUB-PBS as a television director, motion graphics designer and master control engineer. This gave me the tools to approach production from a technical perspective – as well as creative.
I came to the conclusion that the best opportunities in my field in Ohio were in the commercial and advertising world. I co-founded a local video production group while in Athens, and upon graduation became its first employee. We moved to Columbus, and the rest is history!

My primary focus – and what I most excel at – is video production, both in the field and in the studio. I’m just as comfortable capturing moments during live events as I am filming interviews or scripted work.
As a freelancer and a founding member of a small business, I’ve grown used to wearing several hats – and in fact, enjoy the challenge of trying something new! As a result, I have good experience in, and consider myself skilled at:
Motion Graphics and Basic Animation – After Effects and C4D
Producing – Managing client accounts, scheduling and resource allocation
Multicam Directing – setting up and running multicam events and livestreams, along with crew management
IT management – configuring workstations for post-production, basic networking, switch management and server operation
