I love filmmaking because it allows me the unique privilege of crafting and sharing meaningful stories. I love getting to meet new people, and getting to see the world from different perspectives. I believe everyone (company, brand or individual) has a story worth sharing, it's my passion to help you get your message out to the world in a heartfelt, impactful way.
I am a born and raised Edmontonian. I started my filmmaking journey working as a part of the camera department on local TV shows and feature films. I soon found that my passion lay in exercising my creative skills on projects like short documentaries and music videos. I have since created videos for a diverse range of clients from larger companies, small businesses, arts organizations and musicians, local municipalities, and a few charities.
I am a lover of nature, and all the beauty it brings. I'm a big fan of winter (I really do live in the right place), and I love getting out in the snow. To me, one of the most beautiful things are those magical winter nights when the snow is coming down, and everything is really quiet and bright. Besides filmmaking, I like to play piano, paint, play with my dog, watch way too much of "The Office" and wear cozy sweaters.
Teaching and Mentorship
I am passionate about empowering people to get out there and film their own projects!
In my own experience, filmmakers can run into so many roadblocks (including mental ones!) while getting an idea from their heads onto the screen. I love to de-mistify the process of creating a film, and share the tips and tricks that I've learned.
I like to boil filmmaking down to the idea that at the end of the day, it's not about having the fanciest camera, or executing every detail flawlessly; it's about actually getting out there and capturing the story!
Along with teaching workshops on lighting, camera work, editing, and introductory film classes, I have been working with St. Albert's Amplify Festival since 2016. With Amplify, I am partnered up with an aspiring filmmaker to mentor them through the creation of a music or poetry video for a local youth artist. By the end of 2019, we will have created 20 music and poetry videos to help boost young artist's careers!
I also regularly teach and run workshops at the Film and Video Arts Society of Alberta (FAVA), as well as guest instruct and lead workshops for a variety of other organizations.
