Since 2007, I've worked freelance in event production and the experiential marketing field. I've helped execute programs with hundreds of the world's most iconic + well-known brands representing automotive, technology, beauty, healthcare, media, hospitality, entertainment, fashion, and food + beverage. 

My work has taken me all over the US and abroad, working as a Product Specialist, Brand Ambassador, Field Marketing Manager, + Emcee. During that time, I also worked as an agency-represented model and actress. 

Through my career history is where I developed my passion for production + live events. It has also provided me with a unique perspective that I now utilize behind the camera. 

I know how to skillfully navigate any event to produce the images you want and require. I pride myself on creating fun + upbeat atmospheres wherever my camera takes me. It's incredible to witness an empty event space transform into an out-of-this-world experience. I admire the creative teams that conjure up ideas and execute the most creative activations.
