I'm a highly capable production assistant with extensive experience in the Film & Television production and pre-production fields. I've worked as an assistant video-editor at a subsidiary of the Food Network, on-set of film and television productions, and have written and produced my own feature film. I'm currently pursuing my Master's degree at NYU's Gallatin School of Individualized Study, where my thesis regards the most effective way of telling a particular story, and my studies are rooted in Film, Journalism, and English.??
Trilingual (German, Spanish, English)
Video-Editing (AVID, Final Cut)
As an undergraduate at Pace University, I graduated with Magna Cum Laude honors, with dual degrees in Film Studies and English (writing-oriented).
I wrote and produced a feature-length film over the course of a summer, with a small production team that I co-founded and am continuously working with on various projects.
As an intern at Rock Shrimp Inc., a subsidiary of the Food Network, I quickly rose to Assistant Video-Editor, by teaching myself AVID and Final Cut, and exceeding expectations.
I've worked on film and television productions, as P.A. and video-editor.
I'm tri-lingual, a strong writer, and constantly working on learning new tools.
