My interest in video began in the early 2000s when I purchased a High 8 Video camera. I took it with me everywhere, documenting daily life, and was essentially “daily vlogging” before it existed. In high school, I had the opportunity to take video production- a class I truly cared about. My teacher, Mr. Ray Gephart, has always been one of my favorites. Learning the basics of shooting and editing was very enjoyable, and I quickly found I had a passion for what I was doing. I got my hands on every tutorial I could, even signing them out over breaks and after graduation.
I then majored in Film-Video at The Pennsylvania State University. It was exciting to have access to a wide variety of new equipment, editing software, and facilities, so I dove right in, giving my all to every project. I met many great friends and teachers who I still talk to and work with today. Soon opportunities arose to shoot weddings and other projects, so I happily obliged and further refined my craft. One day while at a career fair on campus, my DAD stumbled upon a mother daughter hunting and outdoor show via the recommendation of Bob Martin, Assistant Dean of Career Placement. Being that I enjoy hunting, outdoors, guns, and of course video production, my dad passed the information onto me and I soon met them. Triple MAG was the first of its kind being the only all-female, all family hunting show. It was as though it was a job created specifically for me, and I still think God had something to do with it.
I traveled with them all over the world shooting and editing hunts- a truly unforgettable experience. Continuing to do personal projects, I once showed a recently completed video to my dad, who responded “I was worried you had plateaued, but I guess not.” A few years later, I had the opportunity to provide post production for Archer’s Choice & The Choice TV shows featuring Ralph & Vicki. Their passion for the hunt, integrity, ethics, and true to the story style of production drove the show and were enjoyable to see in each episode. I am very thankful for the opportunities I’ve had, the people I’ve worked with, and the skills I’ve been blessed with. I look forward to continuing to create captivating content! I am available for outdoor production, aerial photography and video, & more!
