Dessert Comes First.

Dessert is the good stuff. I like to think of my work like dessert.

I love to create an experience, capture an ambiance, make memories.
So I write, film, shoot, beautify, and plan my way to success.
Every single day.

So let’s prioritize your dessert a bit. Are you ready to collaborate on your next big moment?

Write.

Bouncing around the country and spending time on both coasts and in the midwest, I’ve always fallen into writing-heavy positions. Social Media, writing, editing, print, digital media, band/artist bios, resumes, etc. I’m a quick typist and a creative thinker. I beat out my classmates to attend the spelling bee all five years a child could go, so I’ve got my spelling game on. And my grammar? It’s a step above… everything. But the best part is I have a marketing-heavy background which has allowed me to look at the bigger picture and message with my freelance clients, applying SEO and other long-term strategies to their game plans.

My knowledge and experience with both the creative and business sides of so many different ventures makes me an ideal candidate to conceptualize and enact ideas to propel your brand and/or talent into new spaces.

I am currently a contributor at PlaylistPlay.com and the former Editor in Chief at Impose Magazine, which made Top 100 Most Influential Music Sites in the World under my direction in June 2017. I was also the Editor in Chief at Moshery during its run, which allowed me insight on starting a lifestyle + entertainment publication. I have been a Contributing Editor for Serial Optimist, LocalRuckus, and BreakThru Radio. My work has been featured on Buzzfeed Morning Links (TWICE!) and Daily Viral. I have been a Featured Torero, and have also been published on Rebelle Society and Quarter Life Joy!

But there’s something else just around the river bend for your enjoyment… {{new publication coming soon!}}

Capture.

As a co-owner and operator of DoubleTake Productions, I have been snapping photos professionally for the better part of a decade. Although I focus on natural light photography as much as I can, I have gained massive amounts of experience in family photos, headshots, live music and portrait galleries, big events, weddings, engagement photos, and event corporate photography.

Besides the DoubleTake Productions website and Facebook, you can find my music photography and some other fun stuff on Impose MagazineMoshery, and – coming soon – do816.com!

Roll.

While my entire film history cannot be fully documented online, there are some examples below that will prove I’ve got some chops. Varying degrees of concepting, writing, filming, coaching, acting, voiceover work, directing, and editing were involved with each project.

I am an active member of Kansas City Women in Film & Television and co-owner/operator of DoubleTake Productions. I am the former Director of Development and Production for Capstone Entertainment Group and Producer for SP/\CEMOB studio.

Beautify.

I have been doing hair and makeup for special events for years, just turning it into a lucrative side hustle in the last six years or so. Myself and an assistant – often, my sister – go on-location to bring your vision to life. Convenience, fun, and a relaxing experience all rolled into one?

Why not?

But that’s not the only way I “beautify” the world. I am also an avid event planner, aiding with many corporate functions, non-profit, and social events.  I have been known to complement wedding planning, and am a DIY master when it comes to planning a menu, whipping up baked goods, cooking, and thrifty crafting. (I even lent my culinary skills to Broadway events and a Broadway choreographer’s wedding!)

Need some finishing touches to enhance your big memories? You can count on me!
