Tell us a little about yourself.

I'm a video producer at Digital Bard , working on videos at all stages of production for tourism and entertainment clients as well as local and non profit companies. I've been working in film and video since 2005 when I got my first job as a production assistant on the low-budget thriller, Blur in Philadelphia. I've enjoyed a varied career at all levels and type of video productions.

How long have you been on the board? How did you come to be on the board? Tell us about your chair position.

I've been on the board since briefly after a joined Digital Bard in 2015. I thought it would be a good way to meet others in the creative industry and to give back. I myself had met my current employer at multiple AAF events years before applying at her company. I've continued to stay, moving from the role as membership chair to treasurer and now to president because I feel the organization is a great asset to the community and I would like to see it help grow and flourish.

Any exciting news or changes we can expect to see from the club?

For me, this year is all about mixing things up a little bit. We're trying to introduce some new ideas into the mix and bring some old ideas back in order to provide the best experience we can for our members.

How about a little known factoid about you…

While many at this point know I'm a huge comic book fan, but what they may not know is that my comic book collection numbers close to 20,000 books including a Stan Lee-signed copy of X-Men #1.
