I was only 15 when I knew I wanted to shoot and edit for film or television. While in the Center for Advanced Technologies Computer-Oriented Media program, I fell in love with visual storytelling. The technology allowed me to focus my creativity through the lens of the camera. I went on to study Electronic Media at the University of Miami. I mastered editing and developed expertise in graphic design and motion graphics. I like to shoot as well as edit because I know exactly what shots I need to tell the story. I strive to achieve continuity while at the same time adding variety to my framing and shot selection. My work is not done until every frame is just as I envision it in my minds eye.
While at Royal Media Partners, I further refined my editing and animation abilities while creating content for the Port Shopping Network onboard Royal Caribbean and Celebrity Cruise Lines. My team and I filmed and edited port information videos, advertisements, interviews with celebrities, short documentary segments, montages and other shows for the channel. I also created and managed systems for keeping track of media, contracts, and programming for 27 ships.
As a student, I did internships with NBC, CBS, and a Miami production company. Working as Station Manager and Production Manager at the University of Miami's television station, I led and motivated my team, and organized the operations of the station. As Production Manager, I had the privilege of filming and editing a private interview session with President Clinton during the Clinton Global Initiative. Some of my awards include a National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences Student Emmy and a National Broadcasting Society AERho Finalist award.
I have dreams of one day traveling the globe documenting diversity in cultures and filming wildlife to share with the world. I love living in Miami for its cosmopolitan flavor and nonstop lifestyle. I am a tech geek, an adrenaline junkie, and I have a soft spot for animals and nature. When I'm not working, I love to play tennis, dance salsa, and go mountain biking.
