Summary

I am currently participating in Hollywood Cinema Production Resources’ Training Program in order to be recognized by Local 600. Although I was pursing a career in clarinet performance, with over 10 years of experience, I switched my major in the middle of college to pursue a degree in Graphic Design. Through YouTube tutorials, online forums, and camera assistant/lighting manuals, I am dedicated to learning the technical aspects of cinematography.
