Life Long Storyteller
I have always been a storyteller. My mother is a teacher and gifted storyteller and my father is a graphic designer and a painter. Both of them are artists in their own ways, and they inspired me to keep learning! As for film, my grandfather had a split 16mm film camera. He filmed my father from the day he came home from the hospital to age 17. A camera was ALWAYS at family gatherings. The desire to document and share life through a lens came directly from them. In Middle School I became part of the local public access station and stayed with it through high school. Off to College for Film & TV at Savannah College of Art and Design, then (after wandering a bit) came back to Massachusetts to work in film. Since then I've continued in Film, but also worked in Public Access, and Radio since. All media, and all storytelling is important. Count me in!
My world revolves around connecting people through their personal stories, and how to share those stories where people will see, hear, and read them.
Teaching others, having good conversation and learning about the world around me are the driving forces behind who I am. Who are you? (See what I did there?)
