Thus far, life has presented a colorful palette! I ran away with the circus to Japan, traveled several months to our National Parks collecting and documenting stories while camping and exploring everywhere visited. I took part in an Olympic Distance Triathlon to benefit people afflicted with Leukemia or Lymphoma, and, I might add, I'm scared of water. I enjoy confronting my fears, living my dreams, and trusting that I will land on my feet - or my bum.
As a little girl I wanted to be a veterinarian and a musician. I had a habit of bringing home every stray, injured wild animal, and sometimes someone's pet because they looked sad and I thought they needed some extra attention.
Currently, I am very fortunate to work as the Production Director and a DJ at THE POINT RADIO STATION doing what I love - producing commercials and PSA's and hiking with my dogs. While here, I picked up a VAB award for Best PSA - 911 Text Messaging Service for Verizon. You can check out my show M-F from 3-7pm EST to listen live. You can stream online.
I founded LAKOTA FILMS, LLC to provide a home for my independent creative work as well as to support the work of other artists. IT'S ALL RELATIVE screened at Woods Hole Film Festival in 2010. FREE TO GOOD HOME, a short docu-drama alerting pet owners to the dangers of posting free pet ads received an Honorable Mention Award at Twin Rivers Media Festival in 2007.
I worked as a Production Assistant on THE PLACE BEYOND THE PINES as well as in their sound department, a wonderful film directed by Derek Cianfrance, starring Ryan Gosling, Bradley Cooper, and Eva Mendez. I worked as Assistant to Director, Rob Schmidt on THE ALPHABET KILLER starring Eliza Dushku and Timothy Hutton. Additionally, I was the Production Coordinator and Editor for Morphogenix, producing the PBS broadcast of REAL MOMS, REAL STORIES, REAL SAVVY and recipient of a Telly Award for FERTILE HOPE. I worked with several people as an Executive Assistant Floater at MTV NETWORKS to former Co-President and COO of Viacom International, Tom Freston; Former Chairman of MTVN, Herb Scannell; President of Network Development MTVN, John Sykes, COO of MTVN International, Alex Ferrari, and President of MTV, Christina Norman. And, I had the great fortune to be a Personal Assistant to KATHERINE HELMOND of Who's the Boss, SOAP, Coach, and many other shows.
Thank you for checking out my bio and demos as I build upon my home studio. Enjoy!
