In high school I loved photography. I used to stay late after school developing black and white 35mm film in the darkroom.
I decided to study film and television production, with an emphasis in cinematography and documentary production.
I learned more about cameras and what they could do, and I learned storytelling skills.
I earned my Bachelor of Fine Arts in film and television production from University of Colorado, and I worked in television production for 8 years in Denver, Colorado.

Technology & Live Streaming
From 2012 to 2016, I worked on emerging video technology projects in Silicon Valley.
I was one of the first to personally film, produce and direct live streaming broadcasts for television and radio stations, educational conferences, weddings and events.
My team published a live video streaming app to the app stores before Facebook Live even existed!
In 2016, I started my business as a freelance photographer and videographer, working primarily on weddings, real estate and promotional videos for local businesses.
In 2017, I produced a short film in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico entitled Banality of Evil, which was accepted into seven international film festivals.
I am currently thriving in my role as CEO and boss lady at DuChateau Film, wearing all the hats: Writer/Director, Director of Photography/Camera Operator, Editor/Post-Production Supervisor.
