Summary

I've been working as a professional freelancer for about a year and a half, and have worn many different hats on set. I've worked in the camera, art and production departments, as well as working as a script supervisor and lead screenwriter. I'm most at home as an A.D., and have gained some great experience working as both a first and second A.D.
