I am a graduate of Purdue University with a degree in Film and Video Studies. Currently I'm a freelance video editor, videographer, and photographer. Some of my regular clients include Eli Lilly & Company, Indianapolis Motor Speedway Productions, Purdue University, Oxbow Animal Health, Avian and Exotic Animal Clinic, Sonitrol, the Association of Exotic Mammal Veterinarians, and the Association of Reptilian and Amphibian Veterinarians. Previously, I was a full time video editor for three years at Hall of Music Productions at Purdue University, and an intern at 4th Row Productions in New York City.
I really enjoy working with non-profit groups and have created several promotional videos for different groups in Indiana and organizations at Purdue University, including Play Ball Indiana, the Caring Center, Footlite Musicals of Indianapolis, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Lafayette, and the Bujinkan Yanagi Shibu martial arts club at Purdue.
While in school, my short film "Refraction" won Best Picture at the 2013 Lake Maxinkuckee ‘Gift of Warmth’ Film Festival in Culver, Indiana. It also won Best Editing at the Purdue University Film and Video Studies Short Film Festival in April of this year. Previously, my short film “Two Drops” also won Best Picture at the Lake Maxinkuckee Film Festival, in addition to Best Picture and the Audience Favorite Award at the Purdue's FVS Short Film Festival in 2012. In 2014, I filmed and edited the short film "Diverting," which screened at GenCon in Indianapolis.
During my last semester of school, the Purdue Film and Video Studies Department selected me as the "Most Promising Future Professional" for the 2012-2013 year. I was also selected for recognition on Purdue University's "5 Students Who" website, that shares the stories of Purdue's "best and brightest" students. I also helped write the Purdue Football Welcome Video that won "Best in Game Feature" at the 2013 Golden Matrix Awards and "Best of Show" at the 2013 North Central Indiana American Advertising Federation ADDY Awards.
In my free time, I love watching, making, and talking about movies, traveling, photography, going to the theatre/concerts, playing games, spending time with my family and friends, and re-reading Harry Potter...again.
