I graduated from UNC-Wilmington (#wingsup) in 2007 with a BA in Film Studies and a focus on documentary film production (which lends itself nicely to wedding films). After college, I cut my teeth in New York City, learning the craft and working mostly in commercial production.
When I'm not working with cameras, you may be surprised to find out that I'm a bit of a nerd. I've never met a spreadsheet I didn't adore and I obsess over music, technology, and personal finance.
I knew from a relatively young age that I wanted to be an entrepreneur. I even had my own eBay-based business buying, selling, and trading sports memorabilia when I was 12. I've moved on from the dream of owning a collectibles store, however the passion for operating my own company always stuck with me. (And I still have some pretty sweet memorabilia -- thanks for saving all of my rookie cards, Mom!)
I studied Studio Art and Art History at UNCW. Before becoming a filmmaker, I was a wedding and portrait photographer. In fact, our story began with a meet-cute at a Southern Weddings Magazine party. My Contax 645 was my bebe and I still indulge myself with film photography on our travels.
Like Carrie Bradshaw, I love a good library book. And while I once had my own collection of Manolo Blahniks, I've been cheating on fashion with recipes from NYT Cooking for some time. The prep work, the taste testing, the sips of a Spanish Tempranillo in between stirs. Cooking is my quiet time.
Somewhere along the way I became a Wordpress ninja and I actually built this website. I'm also the woman behind the client experience and social media at AGF. Perhaps I'll see you in our DMs!
