In my 31 years producing creative content I have learned one irrefutable fact:  every project and every client is unique. And I wouldn't have it any other way!

As a Producer, I excel in creating and managing project timelines and budgets on any type of creative project, while building strong client and production staff relationships.

As a hands-on artist, I have directed, shot and edited both photography and video for clients ranging from Silicon Valley tech startups, video game companies and real estate brokers to non-profits and performing arts entities.
