Hey, I'm Kelsey!

Los Angeles, California

Hello Seed and Spark! My name is Kelsey and by trade I am a location sound technician (mixer, boom, utility, or any combination thereof). But, for the purposes of this site I am a filmmaker. I have always loved stories' tranformative and connecting power. I'm so excited to help others further their own stories, and hopefully get a helping hand in making my own stories come off the page too!
