When I was 9 years old, I received my first video camera. It was a Samsung camcorder with a small flip out screen -- which I thought was pretty darn cool. By the time that camera was finally retired, it had captured countless movies, music videos and skits that I had enjoyed making with my siblings and friends so much. The day I got my first camera was the day I started storytelling.
With 8 years of professional experience, I have worked extensively with companies in and around Edmonton, creating promotional and keepsake content, and I have captured countless weddings, performances, and events. While completing my undergraduate degree in English and Film Studies at the University of Alberta, I had the opportunity to work at the Students' Union, producing content to promote student events. There, I was honoured to develop and train a team of passionate media volunteers. This team is still going strong today, capturing campus events and receiving professional media capture training.
Following university, got to work making this passion my career and began working full-time in the industry. In 2021, my Grandpa passed away. I had been making a film about his life and had already gathered interviews and photos -- it just needed to be put together. I spent the following 2 weeks creating the story of his life and when I was able to share that gift with my grieving family, the feeling was indescribable. Thus, my EBP Legacy company was born and is now growing. I love having the ability to capture stories that evoke emotion and are cherished by families.
Since beginning this venture, I have been looking for more ways to apply film to what I love, one of which being dance. I grew up dancing and am still an instructor, today. I am so thrilled when I get to bring my camera into the dance studio and capture movement. I have had the opportunity to both create and share beautiful projects during my career and I am so excited to keep doing what I love.
I am passionate about telling and sharing stories through film and photography and I would love to help you create, capture and share your story -- whatever it may be.
