I own a Samsung HMX-H300 Full HD Camcorder with 30x Zoom, and have a variety of tripod styles depending on the type of shoot required I was the photographer/videographer for Pacific University?s Theatre and Dance department from 2010-2011, and also had the experience of working with Foster Kids Forward to create a promotional video. I was involved in every step of the production process, from planning the concept to meeting with the family to filming, editing, and finalizing the project. I also directed, filmed, and edited a video for a fellow Pacific University student for an internship application. I am proficient in both Final Cut Pro and iMovie editing programs.
I was the commentary editor/layout designer for my high school newspaper during my senior year of high school, and I have designed several portfolios for my various integrated media classes. I also took a Publication Editing and Design course, where I made layouts for a variety of fictitious purposes. In addition, my professional resume was designed in InDesign, and I have used the template to create resumes for several of my friends and classmates.
I am an award-winning independent filmmaker, with a short film and several digital series on my resume. I also hold an MFA in Writing and Producing for Television, during which time I honed my craft and learned the ropes of all parts of production, from development to submitting to festivals. I also write how-to and craft blogs for a web series hub, which are widely read and shared by members of the web series and indie film community.
