“I create art in many mediums but ultimately my favorite medium is filmmaking. I love creating films because it is a powerful way to tell stories and movies have great impact on our culture.”

“A Self Portrait Shortly Before Turning 21”

Pencil, Paint Marker

Days before turning 21 years old I drew a self portrait. Created with pencil and paint markers on multimedia paper I hoped to reflect on the years of my life. There is comfort in self reflection and seeing beauty from within.

“Do Snow Men Need Jackets for the Cold?”

Paint Marker

Created using paint markers on multimedia paper I hoped to create something with a lighter mood. Inspired by the huge snowstorm that hit New England in 2020 I wanted to explore the fun thought of snow men wearing winter snow gear.

“Home Is Home Is Home Is”

This video is correlated to the 2020 Winter Filmbuilding program hosted by Malden Reads revolving around the theme of “Home”. As a mentor I hoped to inspire participants with possibilities they could create. Using the same materials as the participants (WeVideo editing software, a laptop, and a cellphone) I wanted to create a video about my own thoughts on “Home” that bring me comfort.
