I believe that dynamic visual storytelling is one of the most powerful ways to spread ideas across audiences, languages and cultures. Whether promoting a small business or pushing for social justice, I utilize the power of compelling stories to produce videos with maximum impact.
I've worked on projects pertaining to social development, cultural preservation and education across the world. I was honored with a Mid-Atlantic Emmy for my work as a Video Editor with NBC Philadelphia, as well as a National College Emmy Award for a social media video series I created in collaboration with indigenous communities in Nicaragua to preserve endangered languages. Soon after, I worked as a Princeton in Africa Communications Fellow with Gardens for Health International, a grassroots NGO working to end chronic malnutrition in Rwanda. Most recently I was selected as a 2020 Fulbright grantee, and began teaching filmmaking, animation, and leading a youth video production team for Big Picture Alliance in Philadelphia.
In addition to working on international projects, I love to help small businesses and non-profits in the Philadelphia area bring their stories to life by producing short documentaries, promotional social media videos and animations.
