Professional Communication, Digital Media, and Education
Media and education have been the two great passions in my life. My involvement in education and technology started in elementary school when my father taught me how to use Adobe Premiere Pro and continued through high school where I led my school computer club in creating an award-winning short film.
As I moved into college, I continued my journey into media studies while still working at Duwall Productions. At Pitt, I worked and continue to work as a professional video editor, creating promotional and educational videos for the university. My projects have included everything from motion graphics to multi-camera 4k shooting, editing, and file management.
I studied for four semesters at Point Park University before completing my Bachelor's Degree in Professional Communications at the University of Pittsburgh.

Adobe Premiere Pro
For this video, my task was to go up to Boston to interview our leadership team and our clinic directors. The direction was to create a video (recruiting-focused) that highlighted our brand values. With a colleague, we scripted, shot, and edited every scene in this video consisting of ~8 individual interviews.
Adobe After Effects
This is an example of creating a graphic from scratch. I was given a rough outline, brainstormed with leadership, and came up with this design. I used Photoshop, Premiere, and After Effects to create this title. The sound effects were made using a CCTV hum, synthesizers, and audio mixing.
Adobe Premiere Pro
Here is one of many examples of interviews I have shot and edited. In this video, I ask a clinic director about what it means to be in her role. I then took this ~40 minute interview and cut it down to 1:30.
