Q. Why did you choose to study Journalism?
A. Sharing stories has always been important to me. As a kid I went through hundreds of disposable cameras capturing life happen around me. Once I was old enough to be trusted with the camcorder it was glued to my hand. I was always intrigued by video journalism but my passion really developed after I was handed a "real" video camera Junior year. That professor showed me the power of creative freedom and visual storytelling and ever since then, I've been hooked!
Q. Where do you see yourself in five years?
A. In 5 years I'll be in my early 30s. (Ek!) I hope to have started a family and be figuring out how to balance a full-time career and mom life. My career is incredibly important to me so I always envisioned working while raising a family. Both my parents worked full-time and it really helped me understand the value hard-work, time and money.
Q. Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
A. I hope to have joined an award-winning creative team and earned a position in a leadership role. My long, long term goal is to become a professor at a distinguished university teaching introductory video production or studio production. I really want to teach young professionals the power of creative freedom and share my career growth and experiences with the next generation of creative minds.
Q. If you could work with any Executive Producer, who would it be?
A. Leonard Dicaprio OR Louie Psihoyos. Both are amazing producers and talent. I love environmental/social change documentaries. Environmental change education is incredibly important to me and I would be honored to work beside either of these men.
Q. Besides TV and film, what are your hobbies?
A. I’m currently training to run the 2019 London Marathon. Beyond fitness and wellbeing, I also love to backpack, garden, paint, and cook. I can make some amazing chicken meatballs! You should also know I'll never turn down a good book.
