Lights, Camera, Action!
Visual storytelling is my passion, and I love to teach it! Working professionally for 10 years, I have substantial experience in television, film, corporate communications and digital media production. I teach 1-on-1 students of all ages. Also, I teach various digital media subjects to groups at the Pelham Picture House.
Looking forward to working with you!

A few highlights: I'm a 3 time New York Emmy nominee and 5 time Telly award winner. I'm a director, writer, producer and editor of two award-winning films, "Give a little" & "Perspective." Also, I'm an award winning producer of Granville T. Woods Documentary. I'm the Production Manager & Director of Women of Action with a multi-camera YouTube-series promoting female empowerment. I'm the Producer and Host of a Podcast and I recently launched my own podcast.

I have worked in video & film production for over 8 years at professional organizations and stations such as Verizon FiOS, PBS, Plum TV, Fox News, and WWE. My education is in Film & TV Production and I am currently working in the media production world as a director, producer, editor and photographer.

I am very skilled in MS Word and happy to teach what I know to help you communicate effectively.

I've trained students, colleagues and friends in video, media and photography. I truly believe that with determination and dedication, we can learn anything. My goal is to teach you the technical part of the job, but also the artistic part, which is just as important. After all, media is a way of expressing ourselves, it's an art! So I'll teach you what you need, with hands-on experience, and we'll make it fun!
