I am a videographer in Portland, Oregon with a love for all things horses. Originally from Minnesota, my childhood was spent on racetracks across the Midwest. I am currently training my dream horse with hopes of excelling at dressage and Parelli. I have a Cairn Terrier, Ellie, and an old cat named Winston. I am fortunate to have a pretty nice boyfriend who understands and supports my love of horses. My blog helps keep a record of my successes and failures and helps friends and family enjoy the journey with me.
I have been getting lots of emails from people interested in my documentary "Inside the Backside" which is about the community of people living on the backside of Portland Meadows. I think after Eight Belles death, people are googling and seeking information about horse racing and they stumble onto my trailer. I spent most of my weekend mornings in Fall of 2007 and Spring of 2008 getting to know the folks at Portland Meadows. I think the people I worked with have interesting stories to tell, so I look forward to getting down to editing. I have been busy "ingesting" all my video and as of today, it is ALL in there. Yeah!! That is the hard part, the tedious part because everything goes in to the computer in real time, so it takes forever. Now I can get busy logging and working on a script. My goal is to have it done by September. Dream big right? I have a bunch of Breyer horses lined up on the wall behind me cheering me on.
