I began my media production career in 1994, when I became involved in my first video project as a commercial producer. I became instantly fascinated by the potential for keen ears and attention to visual details to produce an emotional impact on audiences.

My early work focused primarily upon video production and graphic design, but everything changed when my daughter joined her competitive dance team in junior high school. I developed videos for her team and started creating green-screen print and electronic products for competitive dance regional and state competition. I cheered her team and coaches as they won 6 consecutive Illinois Drill Team Association state championships and admired the work they put in to maintain the highest standards.

I’m a full-time English teacher and cross country coach, but I spend evenings and weekends (part time) and summers (full time) in my studio transforming clients’ hopes into music that exceeds their expectations. Instead of cookie-cutter amalgamation of music and lyrics, I strive to make every project the best I’ve ever done. That’s why today I not only have a steady list of returning clients, but also see them hit the stages and gym floors at local, regional, state, and even national and world competitions.

Whether clients are just starting out or are nationally admired choreographers and coaches, I devote the studio time I have available to push toward greater and greater results.
