As a independent filmmaker, writer and freelancer, I have had the pleasure of pursuing a number of colorful and exciting careers in the last few years. I was an English major with a concentration in Creative Writing, and I graduated magna cum laude from the University of New Mexico in 2006. I have published articles and short stories both online and in small publications over the years, and I have also written two feature films that have been purchased by independent production companies.
After working for many years as a long term substitute teacher and writing on the side, I began to pursue a career in the film and television industry. I have worked on a number of features as both an assistant director and a producer and have also worked as a production assistant and coordinator on projects that have aired on television. My previous duties have included creating and providing schedules for both crew and cast, compiling and disturbing call sheets, on the spot rescheduling, contacting and maintaining a positive relationship with locations, keeping the production schedule on track and making sure both the cast and crew are functioning as a team.
Paired with my experience as a substitute teacher, as well as background experience in police dispatching and retail management, I have developed a strong ability to meet deadlines quickly and efficiently and can communicate goals and ideas successfully both verbally and through the written word. I am capable of setting, maintaining and achieving realistic goals independently and while working with a team, while still keeping the standards of the workplace at a high level that reflects an outgoing and optimistic spirit. As someone familiar with customer service, I also value the time and importance of clients, guests, and talent and I work with and strive to help them feel they are receiving the service or assistance they deserve.
Throughout my experience in the workforce, I have continually found time to continue to write and hone my skills in writing. I am also proficient in computer use, Windows programs, the internet and social networking sites such as Twitter, Facebook, and others.
I hope that my clients here will find my skills and spirit to be a desired asset to their projects. I look forward to hopefully working with you.
