Hello and welcome!
If you're here, it's likely because you're interested in having me scout your property or you've got an exciting film project on the horizon. Either way, I'm thrilled to have you.
My journey in the film industry began with an incredible three and a half years at the Virginia Film Office, providing me with a unique perspective on Virginia's diverse film landscape.
As the Location Scout for Season 7 of Homeland (2017-2018), the Hulu hit "Dopesick" (2021), and most recently, Season 2 of the Apple series SWAGGER (2022), I've honed my craft. These experiences have been my classroom, shaping me into the scout I am today.
Beyond Location Scouting, I proudly serve as one of Virginia's go-to Location Managers. From scouting scenic roads for Subaru to coordinating filming at Dulles Airport for Capital One and even closing streets for Tag Team to perform “SCOOP THERE IT IS” for a GEICO spot — I've been a part of some unforgettable projects.
I have a genuine passion for collaborating with productions of all sizes, taking me to refreshing, new locations, even in a charming city like Richmond, where I've covered a lot of familiar ground. My wealth of knowledge about Virginia's locations is something I take great pride in. My commitment is to deliver informed, respectful, and savvy services to all productions.
Between 2020 and 2022, I had the pleasure of sharing my expertise by teaching Film Production with VCUarts Cinema.
I'm eagerly looking forward to the possibility of collaborating with you!
Versatile Production Management: Proven track record in scouting and managing commercials, features, and television productions.
Effective Liaison with Agencies: Established contacts with state and local agencies for streamlined access and issue resolution.
Expertise in Virginia Permitting: Extensive understanding of the Virginia permit process.
Robust Location Database: Curated and maintained a comprehensive database with hundreds of diverse locations, accumulated over a decade of scouting experience.
I'm a Virginia Beach local, a proud James Madison University grad, and I've been a Richmond, VA local for the past 10 years. When I'm not tied up with work, you'll likely find me cruising around on bicycle or walking my elderly rescue dog (who goes by the name Porkface thanks to a foster fail situation.) My creative journey has been shaped by a profound love of music and over 20 years of training as a dancer.
