Freelance Creation...er

MILLIE

Creative distractor

Currently living in Kansas City, I've worked on feature films, commercials, music videos, ad campaigns, magazine photo shoots, and have traveled around the globe to hone my skills as a visual storyteller, editor, filmmaker, photographer, and all around multimedia specialist.

I love dogs, meeting new and interesting people, and apparently I'm handy with home renovation. On my free time I'm usually seen scrambling around while trying to create something new.
