Road to success

Nothing comes easy, Ringo Starr said “Got to pay your dues if you wanna sing the blues, And you know it don’t come easy.” Working as a freelancer has been both rewarding, and a struggle. I am determined, focused, and single-minded when it comes to my chosen profession.

Would I change anything? Not. One. Thing. Every struggle has made me even more focused, every mistake is a lesson. Luckily I have made a career of learning and growing, keeping up with current trends and technology. Onward!


Over the years I’ve had the opportunity to work with some wonderful people from around the world and from many different industries. I’ve collaborated with Filmmakers, Actors, Feature Films, New York Times Best Selling Authors, Musicians, Global Brands, Film Festivals, Doctors, Lawyers, Jewelers, and more.
