I began in the local Seattle film industry in 2007 with the help of the Northwest Production Index. From reaching out to listed industry professionals I was able to get myself onto sets, ask my elementary questions to surprisingly receptive ears, absorb as much information as possible, and ultimately get invited to more sets. I've worked on documentaries, commercials, tv shows, music videos, infomercials, short films, feature films, and art films since.
I've loved the experience of each project - early hour drives to set, standing in torrential downpours, sanding carpet in an abandoned home in rural Utah, dulling hundreds of straight razor blades in my garage, speed-walking with hands full of gear on the field during a Sounders game, working in warehouses with green screens, making props out of old fabric scraps, distressing thrifted clothes with waxes and oils.
These days I'm now working full-time at a creative agency a Filmmaker. I direct, produce, DP, AC, DIT, set dress, and edit. I'm very grateful for the people I've met along the way and the amazing projects I've been able to witness and participate in.
I am most inspired by the use of music and imagery together and my biggest aspiration is to make films that intentionally approach the connection of the two.
Below is a project I pulled together in a little over 48 hours for an application for the AFI Cinematography program for women:
