At the age of fifteen, Mandi made her first movie – a documentary detailing her obsession with Harry Potter, which was all kinds of crazy (the obsession and the documentary). She hasn’t turned away from video since. During her four years at The Art Institute of Colorado, earning her Bachelor’s in Digital Filmmaking and Video Production, Mandi won multiple awards for cinematography, outstanding achievement, and graduated summa cum laude in 2010. Mandi has worked full-time for Wet Paint Marketing, now WickedThink Marketing, since then.
Mandi has accumulated a massive portfolio during her time at WickedThink, as she is proficient in video production, audio engineering, and photography. She has worked with a myriad of clients, producing hundreds of commercials – both television and radio. She is the primary shooter, editor, and animator for WickedThink’s various multi-media projects. She is adept at portrait, lifestyle, and studio photography. She also occasionally lends a hand proof-reading and putting together WordPress websites. She is the full package. She is not humble.
Equipment-wise, Mandi enjoys shooting on her Canon 5D Mark IV, recording in her fully equipped sound studio, and editing in the Adobe Creative Suite.
In her spare time, Mandi runs a hobby business called Obnoxious Hats by Lady Woolthief where she makes beautiful, eccentric hats, works on cosplay photoshoots, and runs a craft blog. She is married to Adam, a cyber-security genius who is very supportive of all her endeavors and often assists on her shoots.
