After discovering the remarkable world of film, I’ve become fixated on using my craft to tell the stories of the incredible people around me. Because my high school didn’t have a strong media presence, I spent my time teaching myself the Adobe Suite, connecting with local organizations, and building up my portfolio. Utilizing the nonprofit production company I founded my junior year, Project Spotlight, I was able to shoot promotional advertisements for institutions like Simmons University and the Mayor’s Office of Boston. Consequently, I was given the opportunity to direct a documentary, “Change is Coming,” for The March For Our Lives, in Washington, DC.

Now that I’m lucky enough to have the vast resources of Ithaca College and the Park Scholar Program at my fingertips, I’m excited to continue pursuing my mission here on campus. During my fall semester, I’ll be working with Megaphone, Connecting Elders with Technology, the IC Drone Squad, and ICTV’s News Digital Team as an editor. Apart from that, I’m just very excited about what’s to come during my next 4 years here!
