Once you meet me, you'll know that I am a really positive, upbeat person that is willing to do what it takes to get the job done
- even when that requires just taking out the trash or sweeping the floor. Comfortable wearing a variety of hats including: digital tech, assistant, production manager, production assistant. I'm highly adaptable to changing situations and working with a eclectic group of people.
I'm a competent and reliable hard worker with an always professional set etiquette. I welcome long shoot days, weekends, multi-day shoots, and especially travel!
