I am a consistent, hard working individual with an open and creative mind that is a great addition to any production. I am very passionate about my work but I still like to have a good time while reassuring my cast and crew are safe.

5/05 – Current

I filmed surf, stunt, music, and all other sorts of mayhem with the @NubTv crew from time to time still since I used to film and PA different videos we used to make. I used to set up and take down and stunt or camera gear; I assembled and disabled different sets for each stunt or scene we would do. I would ensure safety as best as I could every-time we would shoot.

Production Assistant (Assistant Camera experience)

Staff Position — HopLite Entertainment Details
2/16 – 4/16

I was hired as a production assistant but also assisted the director of photography while still fulfilling my role as a PA. I set up lights and any equipment needed then would hold down the scene while obtaining releases from anyone entering or exiting the scene. I would set up and break down each scene's equipment, as well as loading and unloading each day and night. I would take care of lunch orders and drives and ensure each crew member properly had the right order. I drove many miles to different sets with important people and equipment in the van. I always made sure not only the crew but the cast were safe on set at all times.
