I have always had a passion for film and television. From my first broadcast journalism class in high school to the experience of making an actual film in college, my niche has always been the behind-the-scenes operations. Coordinating, planning, scheduling, and problem-solving are what I thrive on. My motto is that life is ten percent of what happens to you and ninety percent of how you react to it. That being said, I am not easily deterred nor am I one to back down from a challenge. I am a quick-learner who loves trying new things and cannot wait to see what comes next. While I love embracing hands-on projects I am also interested in the research aspect of production and communication. I was lucky enough to present my research on cross-cultural communication at the Abat Oliba CEU Universidad in Barcelona, Spain this past April. Additionally, the research is currently being reviewed for publication. I am an eternal optimist who will do whatever is asked of me without question, and there is never a task assigned to me that I have not been able to accomplish.
