 DIRECTOR/AD 

I live in the duality of wanting quiet and needing to be creatively loud.

Director

As a director I am a storyteller. I employ tone, style, and pace that supports the narrative. My tastes are intentional, from emotional drama and dramedy to social thrillers and action that entertain and inspire. My dedication is to the creative vision and providing an experience for the audience.

Asst Director

As an assistant director my focus and priority is supporting the director’s vision, while always keeping an eye on the clock – both are doable.  I am highly organized, supported by crew, think on my feet, and adapt effortlessly to international destinations. Above all, I maintain a calm and cohesive set.
