Rhi booked their first production gig at the age of 19.  When a camera operator didn't show up on set, they were quickly promoted from PA to camera operator on a reality pilot. Rhi got their start in documentary films as a member of Armed with a Camera, which earned them a grant from the James Irvine Foundation to direct a documentary about the queer Latinx punk scene in Orange County. Since then they have worked for Disney Parks and Resorts on campaigns like Pirates of the Caribbean, Finding Nemo, and High School Musical.  Rhi also served as the head of production for FEARnet horror movie channel, creating branded content, and original shows and interstitials in the horror, comic-con, and gaming space. More recently Rhi has produced branded, reality, and documentary content with Urban Decay, collaborating with Disney's Alice franchise, HBO's Game of Thrones, Gwen Stefani, and Lizzo.

     

Rhi brings years of experience, and most of all enthusiasm to the table when it comes to branded creative content. With a background in film, television, and photography, they show ownership of the creative process from budget to post production. Rhi has over 10 years of experience producing content for social media platforms, 5 years of experience in digital networks and OTT programming, and 5 years of experience in international creative campaigns. Their experience ranges from film, television, music, and gaming to beauty and fashion content. Rhi has built production teams, post facilities, and studio content labs from the ground up and with over ten years of creative exploration and physical production experience, they are an accomplished media storyteller.
