BIO

I am a natural born storyteller. I started my college career as a creative writer, applying my skills to visuals and sound because I wanted my words to come to life. I have worked as a Graphic Designer and Content Writer but video editing is my passion. In video editing you can see the story unfold little by little until the end, it is a process that I truly enjoy. From short films to producing marketing materials, promos have become my specialty.
