Hi there. I grew up in Manteca, CA, a small town in Northern California, and eventually relocated to Los Angeles to attend Chapman University Dodge College Of Film and Media Arts. As a student I directed several award winning short films and commercials. I befriended a very talented community of filmmakers and learned the importance of collaboration early on.

As a pro, I started getting my hands-on set experience in grip and lighting departments. I’ve even dabbled in post production as an editor and done some basic VFX compositing. Later, I segued into production as an AD, and eventually a line producer. I found a niche in producing commercials and have since had the fortune of working with many inspirational directors and clients. 

In 2015 I used these experiences to help my partners build a new commercial production company, Whitelist Content. As a Head of Production, I bid dozens of commercials, developed workflow, and strategized production approach. During my full time commitment, I interfaced with sales reps, ad agencies, and clientele, setting up jobs throughout the US and all over the world.

Now I provide freelance services as a line producer. I have a passion for bringing people and their talents together to tell story. I've produced videos in over a dozen states in the US as well as in Norway, Greece, and Mexico. I've had many opportunities to develop as a filmmaker in commercials and music videos, and someday hope to focus my creativity directing narrative feature films with theme, action, and heart.
