Behind

the Lens

Flash back to 2005 as I sat in an AMC movie theatre and watched my first ever Johnny Depp movie, "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory". I fell in love with the art of creating magic through a lens. At age 8, I developed a strong passion for creating videos, the way Willy Wonka loves chocolate. YouTube became my playground and I got my first ever camera and began creating short films, music videos, and PSA's. Flash forward today - I am a Cinematographer and graduate from Emerson College with a Bachelor's degree in Media Production. I still get goosebumps every time I pick up a camera. 

A lot of people wear many hats in their lives. I guess you can say I wear many lenses. I really enjoy cinematography, photography, and creating short films. I love to capture every aspect of life from family to fashion, events, nature, and food. 

 

"The cinema is an explosion of my love for reality" 

-Pier Paolo Pasolini
