About Me

Based in North Carolina and ready to travel.

I'm the co-owner of TopTop Studio and I have many past lives and lived experiences. What I’ve figured out in my time on Earth is that I love challenging myself, collaboration and creating things from the ground up.

Internally driven, I'm inspired by adventure, travel, riding motorcycles, nature, and sharing good meals. I enjoy the challenge of producing stories behind the camera and feel equally alive in front of it. My diverse background in marketing, communications, and journalism allow me to develop and tell impactful stories using research, empathy, and curiosity. 

I graduated with my B.A. in Broadcast Journalism at 39 years old. I worked full-time as a marketing manager while attending the Hussman School of Journalism and Media at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. I drove 45 minutes each morning to attend class and drove back to the office to work several hours before heading back to campus. I did this everyday for 2.5 years. It was hard but I loved it. It taught me if you want something bad enough you can make it a reality if you put in the work.

Thanks for reading my story, now let's chase down some of those ideas.
