I graduated from Ryerson University’s film program and have since worked on a broad spectrum of projects in all sorts of positions: from the production assistant that does Starbucks runs to the videographer shooting footage while riding a camel’s back on the Sahara Desert. I’ve worked at post-production houses, ad agencies, in abandoned buildings, and on a boat in the middle of the South China Sea.

I am a self-proclaimed design aficionado who appreciates symmetry and typography. I taught myself how to code at 12 after being frustrated by the limitations of Geocities… though truthfully I just wanted to customize my Neopets webpage.

I am a meticulous worker, a great team player (performs best in the leader position), and horribly near-sighted.

I also shoot and edit for an all-female travel show crew, MISSADVENTURES.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/6″][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row attached=”true” padding=”3″][vc_column width=”1/3″][mk_icon_box2 icon_size=”64″ icon=”mk-moon-glasses-3″ icon_color=”#230d55″ title=”create” title_size=”16″ title_weight=”bold” title_top_padding=”0″ title_bottom_padding=”20″ animation=”left-to-right”]I am a content creator.[/mk_icon_box2][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][mk_icon_box2 icon_size=”64″ icon=”mk-moon-image-6″ icon_color=”#230d55″ title=”design” title_size=”16″ title_weight=”bold” title_top_padding=”0″ title_bottom_padding=”20″ animation=”bottom-to-top”]I have an eye for design.[/mk_icon_box2][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][mk_icon_box2 icon_size=”64″ icon=”mk-moon-camera-5″ icon_color=”#230d55″ title=”shoot” title_size=”16″ title_weight=”bold” title_top_padding=”0″ title_bottom_padding=”20″ animation=”right-to-left”]And I’m armed with a camera.[/mk_icon_box2][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][mk_padding_divider][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row fullwidth=”true” id=”mywork” css=”.vc_custom_1456522088176{padding-top: 0px !important;padding-right: 0px !important;padding-bottom: 0px !important;padding-left: 0px !important;}”][vc_column css=”.vc_custom_1456514937951{background-color: #230d55 !important;}”][mk_fancy_title color=”#ffffff” size=”32″ font_weight=”bold” letter_spacing=”1″ margin_top=”70″ margin_bottom=”18″ font_family=”Oswald” font_type=”google” align=”center”]MY WORK[/mk_fancy_title][mk_portfolio style=”grid” hover_scenarios=”fadebox” grid_spacing=”0″ height=”150″ column=”5″ count=”-1″ sortable=”false” posts=”5908,5848,5902,5872,5863,5874,5740,5739,5914,5883,5866,5853,5855,5921″ pagination=”false” order=”ASC” orderby=”post__in” target=”_blank” image_quality=”2″ disable_excerpt=”true” disable_permalink=”true” item_id=”1413547628-5441066cc5f68″ disable_zoom_link=”true”][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row padding=”0″ id=”services”][vc_column][mk_fancy_title color=”#230d55″ size=”32″ font_weight=”bold” letter_spacing=”1″ margin_top=”80″ font_family=”Oswald” font_type=”google” align=”center”]THINGS I CAN DO[/mk_fancy_title][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner width=”1/3″][mk_icon_box icon=”mk-moon-movie-2″ title=”VIDEO PRODUCTION” font_weight=”bold” icon_size=”medium” icon_color=”#000000″ txt_color=”#919191″ margin=”60″ box_blur=”false”]Full-service video production, from one-woman shoots to a roster of award-winning cinematographers, audio recorders, and crew.
