CEO & Owner, FAMA Productions, LLC

Sarasota, FL, USA
I’m a Freelance Motion Designer with 7 years of experience in production for both web and traditional advertising, promotions, events, and campaigns. I have produced promotional videos for major clients such as Ringling College of Art+Design, ART Network, The Patterson Foundation, Jewish Family & Children's Service of the Suncoast, The Ringling Museum, among others.

I’m always open for freelancing and can be reached either through this profile or by phone at 941-580-8407.

Until recently, I led a small team of creatives for ART Network, Ringling College's TV station. In this role, I was in charge of bringing people and assets together to make the projects come to life. Accomplishments include creating the most successful fundraising campaign for two years consecutively–the Murder Mystery Party– at Ringling College of Art+Design. Thanks to the advertising campaign over 100 students attended the event.

Colleagues know me as an enthusiast and hard worker, who can always be trusted to come up with the most creative solution possible. From the first phone call, it is my duty to build a proactive relationship with the client to ensure I can deliver the most appropriate solution to the client's needs.
