I received a Film Studies Certificate alongside my degree in college. Since then I’ve continued studying film and have participated in various film festivals and events around the Boston and Pioneer Valley areas. I have had some film essays published online.

Recently I’ve been producing an online series that takes place during the 19th century called Thoreau Burrows. I am curious to learn more about film production and particpate in other projects so that I might become a more effective filmmaker. I try my best to employ elements from the pubic domain in my work to accustom myself to readily available resources and offset costs.
