Personal Summary

Currently, I'm producing content at That Hashtag Show, a top 250k global /50k U.S. website that specializes in entertainment news and media.  While there I've created video game and science fiction based content, covered news from E3 2017, written several articles and reviews, and have developed intellectual properties for various platforms for the site.  Over the last six years, I have been working on film sets in various capacities.  I've worked with YouTube channels JLT studios, Adrienne Finch, and Legion of Creatives.  In these companies as a freelancer, I have written invoices, reviewed and edited scripts, filled set roles in front of and behind the camera based on the needs of production, and organized meetings with major players in the company.  I bring a ''no job is too small'' mentality, a collaborative spirit, years of experience, and a focus on exceptional work.
