THE KP PROJECT
Having loved Kim Possible as a teen, I'd always wanted to create a live action of the heroine. In spring of 2015 that dream came true. With the help of an excellent cast and crew, we created this trailer for the concept of Kim in her later years. It was an awesome experience to work with so much talent from pre to post production.
THERE'S A MONSTER UNDER THE BED
This was easily my favorite film I worked on during my time at USC.
In the hectic craziness of film school, I wanted to remember that filmaking is first and foremost about having fun and this was a project just to do that.

ALLURE INSIDERS: SARAH USLAN
I had an awesome opportunity to work with Celebrity Makeup Artist Sarah Uslan to create makeup tutorials alonside Allure Insiders.

THE HUNGER GAMES PROJECT 2010
In October of 2010, I decided I would create two trailers based on book The Hunger Games for my undergraduate design final. The objective of the trailers was to intrigue the viewer about the story enough that they want to see the movie or pick up the book. They differ in the approach of the story; one with a visual introduction and the other simply throws the viewer in. Every part of the trailers from the cinematography to makeup and hair, editing to kinetic motion and sound was designed by myself. With only 300 dollars in my pocket and an entirely volunteered cast and crew, this was the final product. The project was released in March of 2011 and received a considerable amount of media attention. It raked in over half a million views on Youtube and was featured on an online magazine and two radio shows.
Doing this project was absolute and indescribable happiness. I fell totally and completely in love.

20 SECOND MOTIVATIONAL MOMENT
Just Keep Going
During summer of 2011, I wrote a dysotopian movie concept about a television program that remove people's agency, leaving the 10% of the unaffected population on the run from the government. Through assembling a team and finding locations, I was able to bring the first 5 minutes to life.
Every person involved volunteered their time and talents.
This project was part of my acceptance to the
University of Southern California School of Cinematic Arts Master's Program.

KICK THE CAN
Being a kid and playing kick the can on those summer days was such a great thing and I wanted to capture it. So I called up a bunch of kids I babysat and together we had a super fun afternoon making this short.

THE FOREST OF HANDS AND TEETH BOOK TRAILER
This is a trailer for the book 'The Forest of Hands and Teeth' by Carrie Ryan. I really wanted to make something just super fun before leaving for USC's film school and was lucky enough to make this. The actors were all family and friends and over 50 people were involved and all donated their time and efforts. All the locations and costumes were also donated. We were asked if we were part of the 48 hour film festival happening in Salt Lake at the time but no, it was just an incredibly lucky girl getting to do what she loves most.

LOVE DON'T COME EASY
Feeling I should incorporate more romance into my life, I wrote and shot this short film in the spring of 2011. This was my first experience with explosives and I have to say, I hope for more in my filming future.
