Hi! I'm Finley. I'm a seasoned Executive and Creative Producer with 15+ years of filmmaking experience. I love facing the inevitable production curveballs, and there's nothing I can't produce! I graduated Phi Beta Kappa from UC Berkeley, with a year spent abroad at the graduate school of The Universitat de Barcelona and a double major in Spanish & Legal Studies. After a brief stint crunching numbers in San Francisco's financial sector, I began producing full-time, enchanted by the collaborative spirit of filmmaking.
My earliest productions were music videos for UMG, Capitol Records, and EMI. My music video work quickly expanded into the short-form commercial and narrative realms and, over the past decade+, I've produced an array of international film content, helming productions everywhere from the remote deserts of Eastern Mexico to the jungles of Brazil and the giant urban landscapes of Singapore, Moscow, Tokyo and London. From Meta's Connect keynote to YouTube’s epic Rewind series and campaigns for Lenovo, Legendary, Microsoft, and Google, I've led my casts and crews through rainstorms and heatwaves, Russian winters and Japanese summers, always centering my work around good creative, well-supported talent (both on-screen and off!), safe sets, and collaborative partnerships.
In addition to speaking fluent Spanish and Brazilian Portuguese, I enjoy conversing in all things Spanish fútbol (¡Visca al Barça!), beach runs with my supersonic whippet, Lola, good books, time well spent with family, and 100% natural peanut butter.
