A.C.E. Nominated Editor . Writer . Director . Producer . Champion Football Player
As far back as I can remember, I've always wanted to be in the entertainment industry. Originally from Lancaster, TX, a small rural town just south of Dallas, I would sit in front of the television, day in and day out lost in someone else's world. I guess you can say that I was a tv geek who wanted to be a part of that world so I thought acting was in my future. When I was 16, I got a job as an extra on a local television and there was a time I was taken to set but not needed. So, rather than take me back to the holding area, I was asked to wait behind the camera. It was at that very moment that I knew that I wanted to be behind the camera. I took some production classes and realized editing was where I felt most at home.
Telling great stories isn't just about the writing or direction. What makes a great film in my humble opinion is also about the lighting, the subtext within the props and set design as well as the rhythm projected with edit, music and sound. This is was adds to the beauty. It's what separates it from just another film and it is my wish to bring my talents to short story filmmakers which is something I've only recently began doing.
And, here's a fun fact: I played women's tackle football for ten years and coached for three. I retired after blowing both my knees but not before winning a national championship.
So, I'm no stranger to hard work and determination!
