I am a DGA AD with over
7 years experience on dozens of projects. I’ve worked
on everything from the micro-budget indie to the big budget

Scheduling and I have production paperwork templates for
call sheets, PRs, Exhibit-Gs, etc, etc. I am extremely
thorough in my script breakdown and schedule and like

with problems and unplanned issues is a given on any film
set and I excel at just that. I am always willing to make
the best of a production with the resources at hand.
