Personal Summary

Currently a senior at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts, I am studying to get a BFA in Filmmaking with a concentration in producing. After graduating high school I started working as a contractor for Yellow Shoes Productions in my hometown of Orlando, Florida. Being completely immersed in the magic of Walt Disney World and experiencing the fast paced behind the scenes environment, I immediately fell in love with the industry. After moving to North Carolina for college, I have worked on a variety of projects ranging from music videos and web series to short narrative films. I have experience in both producing and first assistant directing and aspire to work as a creative producer in the future. After graduating, I looks forward to moving to Los Angeles, California to work in television.
