About Ashli

Headshot 2018_sm.jpg

I grew up in dance studios, spending all of the time I wasn't in school learning dance routines, creating choreography and cultivating this self-expression. When it came time to apply to colleges, I asked myself what else can I learn? that will allow me to still express myself creatively but make it a bit more feasible to maintain a lasting career. I remember taking one single video production class in high school and feeling like the creative process of editing was the closest to choreographing I'd experienced and I instantly fell in love with it. I attended Emerson College majoring in video production, and soon found myself interning in the video documentation department at Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival, where for the first time I was able to fuse my love for movement and film. Upon graduating I interned with Sony Music Entertainment where I worked in the video department at Columbia Records, and soon moved to New York City to begin working as a dance videographer and editor for Nel Shelby Productions. Since I've worked with both non-profit and commercial companies such as Teen Vogue, New York Public Library, A&E, Essence Magazine, Theater Development Fund, ArtInfo, Mash Studio, Christopher Duggan Photography, kate spade new york, and more.
