ABOUT ME

I have been working on the Star Wars team at Hasbro since September 2015. I have worked on various lines including Value, Kid, Stylized, Vehicles, and Creatures. Starting in August of 2018, I began leading the Vintage Collection, which is our fan line of 3.75 inch super articulated figures. Since October 2019, I started leading The Black Series, our 6 inch super articulated fan line. I am currently leading 180+ projects and have brought over 50 products to shelf.  I have worked closely with the Lucasfilm team to bring many of the iconic ships, creatures, and characters to life. 

I have attended numerous conventions as a brand ambassador, where I have done press interviews, panels and general fan interactions. I have attended San Diego Comic Con, Star Wars Celebration, Mexico Unboxing Toy Convention, German Comic Con in Dortmund, Fan Expo Canada, and Hascon. I have also helped build the Comic Con Dioramas in 2017 and 2019.

I have always had a passion for film. It has grown from a love of monsters, creatures and imagination into a career that I am excited about every day. Growing up, movies like Star Wars, Aliens and Jurassic Park captured my young mind and drew me in. As I grew older, the thrill and magic of those movies has evolved into a deep appreciation for creation through world building, creature design and movie magic. My desire is to be a part of the team that sparks the joy, excitement, and curiosity that I have every time I step into a theater....
