EXPERIENCE

I am an experienced videographer, director and social media marketer. I have worked in video production professionally for 10+ years and digital marketing for over five years. I value having the creative freedom to take an idea from conception to completion. I've worked on successful marketing campaigns and viral social media content creation.

I currently work as a senior marketing video producer for Response Marketing Group, a $300M+ Inc5000 company.  I'm responsible for creating direct response media ads for digital advertising. I produce content for our live event brands, including Kevin O'Leary, Gary Vaynerchuk, Scott Yancey, Tony Robbins, Josh Altman, Robert Herjavec, Tomi Lahren, Drew and Danny, and Jeff Tomasulo. I’m part of a 4 person marketing innovation team that increased digital sales 40% in less than a year. Previously I worked as a media director at Artec Industries managing social media and creating digital content and was a marketing specialist at DishOne Satellite for over two years creating in-house videos, graphics, etc. 

While in college I managed internal video production for the Brigham Young University Football team. During my tenure with the football team I was privileged to work with Bronco Mendenhall, Taysom HillJamaal WilliamsKalani Sitake, Steve Young and the legendary LaVell Edwards. While in college I co-founded the Hip-Hop/Lifestyle brand JTM. I helped manage a team that reached number one on the iTunes Hip-Hop Charts and BILLBOARD. During that time I was able to work with David Archuleta on the song workin. I continue to work as a freelance photographer and videographer for my company @wefilmstuff. I have produced a wide variety of projects, from automotive, corporate, commercialslifestyle, kickstarter, sports, real estate, fitnessweddings, music videos, vlogs, youtube videos and everything in between.

I earned a BA in Communications from Brigham Young University with an emphasis in journalism, digital and social media. In 2018, I was a finalist for the SPJ Region 9 Mark of Excellence award for online sports reporting. In 2017 I took home a SILVER AAFUtah ADDY Award for a sales parody I created. Also in 2017 I was a part of the CSVA 2017 National Video Department of the Year with BYU Football.

I like to do work that is both visually engaging and imparts an emotion to the audience.
