Rock Your Reel wouldn't be as rockin' without our amazing team of talented professionals.  With years of combined experience, each member is committed to helping you reach your goals.
We've got your back.

With over 20 years experience as a professional actor, writer, director and photographer, Melissa works hard to make sure your project looks super profesh. And her obsession with all things TV helps make sure that your scenes are up to date.

She's the keeper of the calendar, the empress of the email, and the most organized person we know. We should all bow to her and buy her copious amounts of poke.

Melissa's partner in crime, Lynn is an actor, writer, and director who has an amazing ability to draw out the best in everyone she meets. As a writer, her timing and dialogue are top notch. As a director, she won't let you get away with anything less than a stellar performance!

J.J. brings his midwest amazingness to his directing, producing, and editing. And credits you ask? He edited The Carrie Diaries, Gossip Girl, and Scorpion, Most Dangerous Game (to name a few!).

The ultimate multi-hyphenate, Keena is an award winning producer and director (as well as actor/dancer/writer/and new mom!). She also coaches actors who want to produce their own work. Check out her websites: and

Starting as a client, Cari proved to be such a good writer that we *had* to get her on the team! She brings all the good stuff: comedy, drama, a youthful presence in her writing!
And bonus: her parents are doctors, so she's got all that medical procedural language ON LOCK.

With years of professional experience under his belt (including millions of views on YouTube for projects he's produced!), Steven brings a wealth of creativity to set! With his eye for lighting and composition, and ability to collaborate, Steven helps to make each shoot super fun.
