"That'd be a great idea for a film, can I write that down?" seems to be my most common phrase. My creative and curious nature spurs me to be inspired by stories and experiences on a daily basis.
Although I love to learn, my academic and professional background is far from traditional. Most of my work experience has been outside of the classroom: snapping photos at concerts, teaching a documentary film course, recording mitzvahs and more! I run my own freelance photography and videography business, which allows me to create media in many different capacities. The best part about being a freelancer is having the opportunity to develop relationships with my clients, as well as hearing their happy reviews after they receive their finished product! My experiences from the Bahamas to South Africa and even as far as Australia have helped me grow into the confident, creative person that I am today. I love to edit photo and video content, and I am currently learning Adobe After Effects. My long-term career goal is to be a Cinematographer or Director of Photography on a movie or environmental documentary. As most camera operators are males, I would love to be apart of the movement to diversify Hollywood.
Aside from my professional interests, I am passionate about sustainability, all genres of rock music, traveling, running and playing the drums. I am an avid scuba diver and my favorite animal is the stunning Spotted Eagle Stingray.
