"I was born and raised in a passionate and artistic household in Long Island, New York. My father was (and still is) an extremely talented musician and my mother is a holistic and spiritual coach. I'm proud of where I come from, as a lot of the members in my family were (and are) extremely talented. Looking back, it made my childhood a lot of fun. Being creative and artistic was simply encouraged and celebrated. Throughout my childhood I dabbled in music, drawing & painting, video editing, web design and photography. After working and falling in love with digital video in the early 2000’s, I graduated with a Bachelor’s degree and worked in the field of video production for five years in The Big Apple. I gained a ton of experience and skills working on local short films, music videos, commercial work and weddings. I worked my way up as a production assistant to an editor, and eventually to a camerawoman. During these years of getting my hands dirty, I began to form my own unique style of shooting and editing, chiseling and working at honing in on my craft. It was around that time that I started dreaming of all the beautiful possibilities of what I could capture in the world, outside of New York."

"In the new year of 2016, I picked up and moved to Florida to pursue my dreams of capturing the beauty of the ocean life. The ocean had always been my favorite place growing up. My mother used to fearlessly bring me into the surf in Montauk as a kid, and I fell in love with being in water. I was a swimmer and springboard diver in middle school and continued diving for 9 years as a college athlete. I'm grateful to have brought all of my experience from New York and passion from my childhood into my own company. It's been a wild ride, starting from scratch as a brand new filmmaker in another state, but it's been the best decision I've ever made. I've made mistakes, I've met incredible people, I've made people smile and cry with my work and I've grown an enormous amount as an artist. Tallymark represents an outlet for sharing inspiring and beautiful stories, people, places and moments in nature. I'm extremely humbled at all of the opportunities that have come my way in a few short years. I have so many amazing supporters that I cherish greatly."
