A Few of My Favorite Things

Born and raised in the stunning landscapes of the Sierra Nevada and Appalachian Mountain ranges, I grew up skiing and became a cycling, hiking and kayaking enthusiast. After completing my undergraduate studies in Integrative Arts at Penn State University, I relocated to New York to kickstart my career in the film and television industry, specializing in graphic and scenic arts. Experiencing the city's arts and culture and exploring the state's trails and waterways are my favorite things to do in New York.

My interest in ethnography eventually led me to pursue a graduate program in Folklore and Folklife at the University of Pennsylvania, where I learned the principles of fieldwork and the importance of story. Folklore is tradition and story artistically communicated from person to person. Folklore endures because people remember a great story. They also remember great design. I design memorable stories using multiple forms of media, including text, photos, video, animation and graphics. 

My unique education in folklore studies, graphic design and documentary filmmaking fuels my passion for short-form multimedia storytelling. From micro-documentaries to animated explainer videos, I have been producing a wide range of projects for 15 years and counting.
