How can I help YOU?
Let me guess - you have something awesome you want to share with other awesome humans & you think video is the way to go, but you don’t know where to start. And on top of that, you’re not trying to make the next award winning Sundance independent film. I get you! When it comes to video I’ve been self-taught for a large majority of my own video journey & professional life. So I’m all about sharing with you skills, tips, & strategies that allow you to make engaging videos for your audience in a way that is stress-free & fun! Because video is a beautiful vehicle to get your passion to who you want to share it with.
Why do I love video?
I love video, because much like any other art form, you have so much room to play & have fun sharing your passions & stories to others who have similar interests as you. Through video you can connect with others in meaningful ways, broaden your creativity, & grow your passion into something even bigger!
My career before coaching…
The College Era
I spent my first two years at a community college, because I didn’t know what I wanted to do & didn’t feel like paying university prices for basic courses. It wasn’t until around my last semester when I took a public speaking course with an AMAZING professor that I decided what I wanted to study.
When I got my butt to university, I studied Organizational & Interpersonal Communications. And “Organizational” does not mean keeping things organized with a label maker and rubber bins like I initially thought… *OOPS*! It’s basically about businesses & how they communicate. And let me just say that it was a SNOOZEFEST to me! What I did fall in love with was the “Interpersonal” side of my studies, which had a lot to do with how people interact with each other one-on-one in more daily & personal settings.
To be honest, this interest in video started back in high school, but subtly grew the older I got & extended through my college career too. Most of the time I’d just be in my room & make random videos on various topics from makeup to books I’ve read, & makings little videos for my church & friends. Then after graduating university with a Bachelor's Degree in Organizational/Interpersonal Communications I decided to apply to video productions companies in my local areas, because why not!
The Corporate Era
And I was blessed enough to land a job at a production company that started my professional ball rolling & now 5 years later - HERE I AM! Since beginning I’ve learned so much about working with a team, understanding other’s visions, storytelling, & effective workflows. Now after making corporate videos for so many years I’ve felt the calling to educate & support wonderful humans like you who want to make their own videos to showcase what they have a deep-rooted passion for & desire to share it with others.
