New York, NY, US



For over a decade I have studied and labored fluidly in the field of architecture, performing arts, hospitality and travel. I enjoy all of these fields and my ultimate goal is to cultivate the information I gain into the industry of Film & TV, both on camera and in production. Ultimately adopting the job title of 'Factotum'. I've searched through tons of titles that create a solid understanding of who I am through my work, but none really applied to the plethora of various work I've done as a result of my interest in life through art, performance, and design. The factotum is the laborer (either employee or self employed) who sort of does it all. I've taken a liking to this title as it continuously feeds my intellectual curiosity. Overall, I'm non-traditional in my ideas about work while still encompassing a work ethic with strong morals and active doing.
