We all have unique stories

and we are no different! All of us here at Vixen, were brought together because of our love for telling stories through a lens. Each one of us, has our own story on how we got into filmmaking (learn about our why here). Establishing a connection between the viewer and narrative is what we really love getting the chance to do.

It all started with my parents band and a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Camera.

It all started with my parents band and a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Camera.
I was 5 years old when I got my first camera, and it instantly sparked my fascination. Growing up on the road challenged me in a way that most kids don’t get to experience. I was the only child at the time, so I had to flex my creative muscle at an early age. It also made me very independent. I took great pride in owning that camera and took my share of terrible photos with it. Looking back now, I see owning that camera and having that upbringing was shaping me for the passion I would follow and I will always be thankful for that.

As a kid I was obsessed with playing make believe.

As a kid I was obsessed with playing make believe. As I grew older I realized that the obsession was actually with creating and telling stories. Once it was time to go to college, I knew exactly the path I wanted to go; videographer. Ever since then, every day of "Work" has not felt like it, and I can't wait to keep creating with some great people.

For my entire life, I have been a storyteller and cinema fanatic.

For my entire life, I have been a storyteller and cinema fanatic. Film can elicit deep emotions rarely felt on a daily basis and draw you into fantastical worlds and stories - it was my passion for the screen and these emotional moments created by movies that lead me to pursue it as a profession. My visual arts journey has taken me to college at sixteen, Steadicam intensives with Garrett Brown, work with national TV productions and the chance to create several award-winning projects.
My experience with Vixen Productions has been nothing short of incredible - every team member brings passion, experience and a drive for the visual medium of cinema. I was honored and humbled when Lonnie asked if I would be interested in being the Project Lead for the NYC branch of Vixen Productions - Vixen feels like family.

With my camera I am able to capture moments that may never happen again or be replicated in the same way that my eye sees them.

With my camera I am able to capture moments that may never happen again or be replicated in the same way that my eye sees them. Whether it be for products, commercials, or art, there is nowhere I would rather be than behind a camera. My free time is spent wandering, meeting new people, finding places of interest, and getting great shots. I cherish the images our world has to offer. Creating a permanent record of life around me is my passion and I could not dream of a better profession to be apart of.

Curiosity is the word that defines my life. It's the word that took me from Jackson Michigan and placed me in Rockford Illinois.

Curiosity is the word that defines my life. It's the word that took me from Jackson Michigan and placed me in Rockford Illinois. It's the word that attracts me to media because there's too many places to see and too many people to meet for one person to do with their own two feet. Media is the tool that connects us with any person or place around the world in only a matter of seconds. Everyone has a story to tell, and whether it's through a podcast or a film, I plan to help share the stories the world deserves to hear.

During my sophomore year of high school, I became interested in the visual arts and began to develop an amateur photography profile. Although I have long since graduated from my cell phone photography days, I continue to channel the passion, creativity, and fun from my amateur work in my current photography and videography projects.

Our team is composed of creatives that have trained with some of the best in the industry, but our education doesn’t stop there.

Our crew has many skills so we’re able to offer a wide array of services. Every year we attend workshops and trainings to keep ourselves on the up and up.

We’re a team of young professionals that have been in business for 15 years. We’re a small business so that allows us to see your project through the entire process. Which means we will handle it with the utmost care.

We pride ourselves on developing unique and professional solutions for your project.
