About Me
Since graduating from college, I’ve made a living freelancing in the world of film and television. While my passion still very much lies with media, the value of teamwork, perseverance, problem-solving, and steadfast determination, I am interested in leaving the freelance world of film in favor of returning to my passion for photojournalism, videography and print media. The qualities that I have learned working in film/ media over the years are something that I will bring with me to any opportunity that comes my way. I am a hard worker, a fast learner, and eager to prove myself.
