Producer - Photo Editor - Photographer
Photography plays a big role in my career. It brought me into contact with many people, famous and not so famous as well as observing many events and situations. My experiences as a photographer, agent, photo researcher and editor, provided me with an education as well as business and management skills that will benefit you. Additionally, my involvement in professional organizations provides the opportunity to participate and network within the industry so I can serve my clients better.
Earned an MFA in Film and Electronic Media at American University in 2005. My thesis project, Stryker’s America, distributed by Films.com, is a video documentary about Roy Stryker and the Farm Securities Administration photography collection. Additional production experiences include: “The West Wing,” “The Apprentice,” GEICO commercials and other productions.
