If you don’t know me read on! If you do, still read on, maybe you will learn something new!

I was born and raised in the Boise Idaho area. MeI spent my days riding bikes, playing roller hockey, and exploring the ditch that ran behind our neighborhood with my friends.

In high school I was the goalie on the girls varsity lacrosse team as well as the team captain during my junior and senior year. I was heavily involved with my school’s broadcasting program and student council. On most days it wouldn’t have been out of place to see me walking around campus with a video camera in my right hand.

After high school, I continued to nurture my passion in filmmaking by attending Montana State University where I got my BA in film and television production. I received a vast knowledge of filmmaking, and held various positions that ranged from PA to set dresser to electric. I also produced three short films and six episodes of a webseries, worked as the first assistant director on two short films, and edited two.

After graduating, I moved to Los Angeles where I worked on a variety of things. For instance, I was a PA/Intern on the film ‘Celeste and Jesse Forever’ and worked as a freelance motorsports photographer/videographer. While in LA I fell into the world of public relations and decide to further my education and get my master’s degree.

In 2013 I completed my master’s degree in public relations at Syracuse University’s S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications. While attending Newhouse I focused a lot of my research on social media and the entertainment industry. My last requirement for my master’s was completed through an internship with the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences where I was placed in the PR/Publicity department at NBCUniversal’s Universal Cable Productions.

Currently I live in Los Angeles and work as a freelance Production/Events assistant.
