I was raised in the Midwest, taught to love God, my family, and those around me. Creativity and filmmaking came as a byproduct of me trying to figure out what I was passionate about. I wandered and rode my mountain bike in the rollings hills of Metro Detroit, and later on in the towering mountains of the Wasatch Range in Utah. The outdoors and the love of nature have lead me to craft stories and projects about the world that I understood. Enter, filmmaking. 

 

What started as simply learning the in’s and out’s of the lighting and grip departments on set has lead to various and diverse experiences in the film industry. My different backgrounds have given me a versatile knowledge that bleeds into my skills not only as a producer, but as a creative problem solver. In understanding concepts such as camera and lighting design, script and story development, and production management, I am able to create ideas, make good ideas better, and put the right pieces in place to create well-craft work. 

 

My love of filmmaking has lead me to the advertising industry, where I am inspired by the world around me to tell real human stories. As a producer, I seek to cultivate creativity and creative judgement. Ideating, producing, creating, and being inspired by the world around me are what I I strive to do.
