A KINEs STORY

I can't wait to share my story with you all, but to be honest, I didn't know what I was getting myself into when I picked up a camera in seventh grade, but I thank God every day that I did. I am grateful for the journey, the opportunities I've been given, and the talented people I've met and collaborated with along the way. It's been a blessing and there's still so much more to come.

Since seventh grade, I had a desire to create; I developed a passion for photography and the filmmaking process. I used to buy DVD's just to watch the behind the scenes and hear the director discuss the film. I never knew the relationship between the two. When I realized the connection between photography and filmmaking, I began to wonder how my still photos would translate into motion picture form. At that moment, I started making things and discovering and exploring more. Throughout middle school and high school, I continued creating, which led to my acceptance at my dream school, Emerson College.

I was in my own little world at Emerson until I started collaborating with talented, like-minded individuals which further led to groundbreaking projects. Four of my absolute favorites - Breathe, Bliss, I Don't Want Christmas and City of Champions. While I was working on collaborative passion projects with fellow Emersonians, I continued to build my brand as a freelance photographer. The best part about where I am today is that my work both motion and still have gotten me here. They did and still do continue to open doors for me. Now that I have received my B.A in Visual Media Arts from Emerson, I can't wait to continue turning the page of this new chapter and seeing where the future takes me.

AIR KINES

My childhood obsession with The Justice League Animated series sparked my passion for flight. I was always so empowered and inspired by superheroes’ ability to take to the skies to save the day. I was amazed at how their ascension was limitless and how they were able to dart through the clouds. It was captivating to see things from their perspectives. I knew then at that early age I was fascinated with flight and being in the air. I gravitated towards aerial photography and cinematography as I thought of ways to bring refreshing perspectives to my craft. I created Air Kines to link my childhood experiences to my craft and to experience the freedom and exhilaration that I am sure my favorite heroes experience. I did and still do look to superheroes for empowerment and hope.

 LIVE AND CREATE WITHOUT FEAR

As mentioned earlier, I am so grateful for all of the opportunities that have spawned from my passion projects. As I grow older and continue to create, the more I push back against being pigeonholed into a single category. If you are reading this, I encourage you to continue capturing and making work that feeds your soul and makes you happy. My craft and way of thinking have grown as a result of expanding my comfort zone. Making new changes will scare you, however growth begins where your comfort zone ends.
