Hello world, welcome to my portfolio! Here's a little bit about me...
I grew up obsessed with movies and was inspired to study film by my idol, Nora Ephron. I ended up graduating with honors from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington with a Bachelor's Degree in Film Studies and Journalism. Born and raised in Charlotte, North Carolina, my passion for all things film and photography-related has driven me to work on various projects in both documentary and narrative mediums.
I have had the opportunity to work on a variety of film projects, including narrative features, 'The Rack Pack' and more recently 'Grace Point', starring Johnny Lowe and Andrew McCarthy. I also participated in the 2019 Charlotte 48 Hour Film Project as Assistant Director and Script Supervisor of 'The Job', which was recognized for its achievements in Directing, Cinematography, and Musical Score, as well as Audience Choice and Best Film overall for the year.
My proudest accomplishment to date is having been part of the post-production phase of a documentary feature, 'Jewish American Soldiers: Stories from WWII'. Since its official premiere in Charlotte, it has aired on PBS stations nationwide, become available for rental and purchase on Amazon Prime Video, and been included for historical preservation in the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. It also received an Emmy nomination in the Musical Composition/ Arrangement category.
I currently work as Education Program Coordinator for the Atlanta Film Society, in which I'm tasked with logistical, operational and informational coordinating of educational programs, including the Creative Conference during the Atlanta Film Festival, as well as classes, workshops & webinars throughout the year. I previously worked as Production Assistant for Full Scale Productions in Charlotte.
I continue to play an active role in the Charlotte cultural arts scene. Apart from serving as Programming Director for Charlotte Film Festival, I am also an Advisory Council Member for Carolina Film Community, a Senior Usher for Blumenthal Performing Arts, and more recently, a Floor Staff Member for Charlotte Film Society's The Independent Picture House, Charlotte's first and only independently-owned art house cinema.
