Thanks for stopping by!
I am a recent graduate of Pittsburgh Technical College in Multimedia Technology with a major in Video Production, and am nearing the end of my first job out of college as a Photographer on Norwegian Cruise Line's Pride of America in Hawaii. Wanting to be back on the mainland, I am now actively pursuing entry-level employment in Live Production of Photography/Videography and am open to relocating!
I adore being on my feet, working in the moment, interacting with people, and thrive working on a team.
Speaking of teamwork, check out this reference from Lauren Zito, the Department Chair of our Multimedia Department.
During my time at PTC, the majority of which took place during COVID (talk about working under pressure), we were given the opportunity to work in many areas: audio, camera (both still and video), lighting, editing, live production, storyboard/writing, etc. - oftentimes having to do so remotely and without full equipment, due to the pandemic. My reel showcases brief examples of:
~ Interview and commercial projects from school
~ Documentary footage from my internship at Human City Creative where I served in several production capacities
~ Photography (people, pets, nature - you name it, I’ll capture it!)
~ And even a bonus audio project where the lead is played by one of my favorite professors, Bryan Chemini
I came away from my time at PTC with a love for PHOTOGRAPHY and LIVE PRODUCTION, specifically, because it allows me to be on my feet. I love to keep moving. My ultimate goal is to be behind the camera, either shooting the main action or secondary b-roll - whether that be video or stills. Working on a cruise ship gave me skills in customer service/guest relations, sales, set-up/take-down of equipment AND first-aid/CPR, fire/water safety, evacuation, and, should you need it, driving and parallel-parking a lifeboat.
I am interested in finding a production opportunity where I can continue improving upon the initial skills PTC and NCL - preferably on dry land!
I'm ready to work!
