My interest in film began when I was very young, and would use my mother's old camera to shoot movies clip by clip, and watching them in order on the camera's display since I didn't have access to any editing equipment. When I reached high school I began requesting that my teacher's allow me to substitute class assignments with filmed assignments. When my family moved to Port Moody I had to change schools and was fortunate enough to be given the opportunity to take film as an elective course. Each year WorkSafe BC would give students the chance to create a film for their dedicated theme, and the winner would take home a cash prize, as well as a cash prize for their school's film program. I entered with a group in 2011 and won first place, and entered again in 2012 on my own, and took home first place. When I graduated high school I moved to Italy for several months, and came home to an internship with New Image Production company as a junior editor. I stayed there for a couple of months, and then found work closer to home. Film took a backseat for a couple of years as I dated and eventually married my husband. In 2015 I was given the opportunity to produce a set of instructional videos for a local Vancouver business, as well as film a friend's wedding. From then on I decided to see how I would do as a freelancer. Business went surprisingly well and I was busy with work from that moment on. In 2016 I decided to try my hand at shooting a short film seeing as I hadn't done so since high school. I was fortunate enough to gather together an extremely talented group of cast and crew members that would work for Subway sandwiches - and we created Growing Up With Grandpa. The film has been screened throughout the US and Canada and has been an official selection and winner in several festivals. I recently was able to commit myself full time to my little production company, and we enjoy being able to work with clients in events such as the Tedx talks, the BC Home and Garden Show, Socialight Vancouver and even a behind the scenes look at Global News. I very much look forward to what the coming months and years will bring, as I hope to be able to continue making more films and other videos in the future.
