CareEvolve – Explainer Animation
Working with a graphic designer, I animated his drawings, edited the video, and recorded and voiced the voiceover track.
My BFA thesis film, Tigress. Inspired by both my dreams and past events, I wrote and directed this short film. The film centers around Talia as she struggles with her sister’s illness. “Tigress” focuses on childlike yearning for the way we used to imagine our lives to be. Please watch in HD.
If You Leave Me
A short poem, written, filmed, and directed by me.
When Death Comes – by Mary Oliver
This video is based on the poem “When Death Comes” by Mary Oliver which is very much a contemplation and confrontation of the idea of death and dying. Much of Oliver’s poetry is closely influenced by nature and we wanted this video to represent that as well as the relationship between “dark introspection and joyous release” that are so often explored in her poetry.
A short trailer for the BFA film I produced, Frosting.
I did the cinematography for a friend’s project in 2014.

A promotional video I did for the book “I Choose Hope” by Nikki Abramson, an inspirational memoir and self-improvement book. I also was responsible for the photography featured in the book and video.
This was a music video for a competition in 2013 with David Guetta’s song “Sunshine” that I directed and filmed.
