I am an experienced videographer with a B.A. in Mass Communication with a concentration in Digital Media Production from Georgia College & State University. Most of my skills reside in cinematography, photography and editing.
My greatest pleasure is providing and being a part of a welcoming and collaborative environment to create a piece of work we can mutually be proud of. I believe the experience should be just as enjoyable as the finished piece. I am continuing to look for more opportunities to work in cinema, specifically with cameras, that invites growth.
