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 highlighting community projects, I utilize the power of compelling stories to produce videos with maximum social 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 about endangered languages in Nicaragua. 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. I was selected as a 2020 Fulbright grantee to produce videos for a Garifuna language preservation effort with the National Autonomous University of Honduras, which I completed in 2023 after pandemic delays. I currently work as Production Supervisor at Big Picture Alliance, where I lead a video production team and teach intensive youth apprenticeship programs in Philadelphia.

In addition to working on international projects, I love to help small businesses, non-profits and community organizations in the Philadelphia area bring their stories to life by producing short documentaries, promotional videos and animations. I am also a Part 107 certified drone pilot.
